Powerplant OperatorClick for detailsIn today's modern environment, we often take the flip of a light switch for granted.  With this simple gesture, we are connecting to a vast system that includes the elements of people, electric lines, and generating equipment.  Power plant operators, who are responsible for the machinery that generates electricity, are a vital part of this industry.

Four courses new to Casper College were specifically developed for the program and include Power Plant Orientation, Power Plant Supply and Control I and II, and Water Treatment. “These four courses are delivered in a combination of modalities including classroom instruction and field experience through job shadowing,” said Burnett.

According to Burnett regional and national forecasts for employees in this field show a high demand in the next eight to 10 years and beyond. “Students who graduate from Casper College with a certificate or AAS in electric power technology will be prepared to begin a career in the electric power generation industry,” he said.

A total of 64.33 credits are required for the A.A.S. degree and a minimum of 33.5 credits are required for the certificate.
