Summer 2020 Updates to Online Courses; Effective Until Sept. 30

Wednesday, June 24, 2020

Please review the information below for changes to upcoming onsite lab scheduling and in-person classroom courses, in response to COVID-19 in California.

The good news for Electrician Trainees and Journeyperson Continuing Education Students enrolled in our programs is that most of our class delivery is already online. Online classes will continue to be delivered as scheduled with no interruption, including all evening GetWired classes. Our entire summer catalog is online and available for enrollment here. Alternate arrangements are offered for onsite lab days; please read below for details specific to your course.

For those students currently enrolled in a GetWired class with a lab date from now through the end of Session 3 (September 30, 2020):

  • Your lab will be conducted entirely online.
  • Your lab date will remain identical. Your lab time may shift from afternoon to morning, or vice versa. Please watch your email for further details.
  • WECA will send you confirmation of your login instructions for your online lab.
For those students interested in Two Day Exam Prep, we are currently offering a Live Online Two Day Exam Prep rather than the classroom version; this course uses the same curriculum as our ongoing popular course, but is held in a live, online, instructor-led format across two Saturdays.
  •  Live Online Two Day Exam Prep, 16 hours (July 18th and 25th; open for enrollment)
  • You may also consider GetWired 404 Exam Prep. (GetWired 404 is 42 hours, entirely online and led by a live instructor, and delves even more deeply into preparation for the State certification exam).
The situation around COVID-19 is rapidly evolving and WECA's delivery plans are subject to further modifications based upon subsequent guidance from authorities. We're glad to be able to deliver our regularly-scheduled online classes without interruption. Please follow WECA's communications closely for further updates, as we will do our best to rapidly communicate any further changes to you. Thank you for your patience and solidarity as we all work together to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our community.
