 “In addition to regularly scheduled classes, the Industrial Technology Department at Cleveland State Community College is pleased to offer the Electrical Maintenance Certificate on a Saturday schedule, stated Dr. Sal Mirza, dean of Business and Technology. “Beginning in the fall, this one year program offers the foundational classes that prepare you to obtain one of the following jobs: Electrical Maintenance Technician, Electrical Installer, and Repairer, Maintenance Electrician, Industrial Maintenance Electrician or Industrial Electrician.
