LFCISD Partners with TSC for Dual Enrollment Electrical Courses

Los Fresnos CISD – Two students at Los Fresnos CISD are finishing high school this school year with a bit of a head start in their career path. Antonio and Jesús Jr. are two students that have continued dual enrollment courses with TSC, even despite the hardships from the past year’s pandemic.

Rolando Guerra, the Career and Technical Educational Director, expressed in an interview that Antonio and Jesús were motivated to finish the necessary requirements to obtain the proper certificates needed to pursue their career goals.

The students receive 1 on 1 hands-on experience with a TSC instructor right here at the Los Fresnos Highschool. And most importantly, they obtain the proper knowledge in safety, and the procedures needed to install fixtures, electrical lines, and other basic skills that any electrician would use like testing sockets to ensure the proper amount of power is being used.

By the end of this school year, the students will have received two certificates in electrical safety. The NCCER Certificate stands for ‘National Center for Construction Education and Research’ and was founded in 1996 as standardized
training and provides industry-recognized credentials for those working in the construction, maintenance, and pipeline industries. The students will also receive Osha 10 training. The term OSHA 10 refers to the OSHA Ten Hour Training that is part of the certification needed for the workforce. OSHA Ten makes workers more knowledgeable about their rights related to workplace safety and health and overall workplace hazards.

When asking the principal why offering these dual enrollment classes are so important Principal Justin Stumbaugh responded that, providing kids the opportunities and options to pursue their goals and dreams is what it’s all about.

The students, after finishing Highschool, will then be one step ahead in getting into the career they enjoy. And then can finish their classes at TSC.
