Instructor Spotlight: Meet WECA's new Low Voltage Apprenticeship instructor Randy Rivera!

Monday, February 28, 2022

WECA’s newest Low Voltage Apprenticeship instructor has come full circle.

Randy Rivera, a native of Los Angeles and the Philippines, was one of WECA’s first Low Voltage Apprenticeship graduates in 2004. Randy—who overall has over twenty years of experience in the telecommunications industry—also became certified as a BICSI Level 1 and 2 installer in 2008 and 2009, respectively, and most recently worked as a Telecommunications Foreman for Valley Communications, Inc.

Randy is being mentored as a new instructor by longtime Low Voltage Apprenticeship and GetWired! instructor John Arias and has set his sights high with WECA—as evidenced by his personal philosophy of “we can always do better.”

“I try to give students feedback as far as my experience out in the field,” says Randy. “My goal here at WECA is to be one of the top instructors and pass on knowledge to my students.”

Outside of work, Randy loves hanging out with his family and airbrush painting.

“I airbrush portraits on canvas and also work on murals with my wife,” Randy concludes.

Welcome back, Randy! We’re excited to have you here and look forward to your future with WECA. Perhaps a mural is in order?
