The utilities industry is one of the most technologically intensive segments of today’s economy. The utility worker who is well rounded with knowledge of different types of utilities and skills will find success in many areas. Mitchell Tech is addressing this industry need by combining the curricula of existing programs to offer an AAS degree in Utilities Technology.
Students who complete a combination of any two programs:
- Power Line Construction and Maintenance

will be awarded an AAS degree. Graduates of this program will find many employment opportunities with utility providers.
Students are expected to conform to Mitchell Tech’s Drug Testing Policy while enrolled in the Commercial Driving course. See the Student Handbook for details.

Please Note: Students planning to obtain an AAS degree in Utilities Technology MUST complete the CDL requirement during their first year of enrollment.
