Dart donates official codebooks to assist aspiring electricians

Dart has donated the official textbook of the National Electrical Code to the next class of electricians who must study the code to sit the Cayman Islands Government Electrical Licensing Exam.

Charles Alberga, Dart MEP technician and adjunct instructor at the UCCI School of Hospitality Studies, prompted his company to supply the books. Alberga, a licensed master electrician, teaches the course.

Gary Gibbs, senior vice president of design and construction at Dart, said, “The opportunity to support aspiring electricians as they prepare to sit their licensing examinations made perfect sense to us. We are also proud of Charles, who volunteers his time and is paying it forward by sharing his expertise with others in his field.

“It’s great to see the Electrical Licensing Preparation course, and others like it, offered by UCCI’s School of Hospitality Studies, as courses like this allow adult learners to broaden their skill set and maybe even to re-train and become qualified in a completely new career.”

The course is offered as a part of the School of Hospitality Studies’ technical-vocational curriculum. For 15 weeks, experienced electrical practitioners are taught the requirements of the National Electrical Code as they prepare to sit the Electrical Licensing Examinations at the wireman and journeyman level.
