Simplifying the path
This Roadmap is provided as a SAMPLE GUIDE showing what a full-time student's schedule MAY look like. There is no guarantee that all classes will be offered each semester or that classes will have space available. You must meet all prerequisite requirements prior to registering for a class.
Schedule Planning: Take either the 20 series or 30 series classes during the second semester, whichever classes are offered. Then take the 40 or 50 series during the third semester, depending on your specialty (Electrical or Instrumentation). During the fourth semester, take whichever classes you did not take during the second semester. Please see a counselor to get help planning your schedule.

LMC is in a unique position to offer an outstanding, up-to-date curriculum that has been designed by industry for industry. No other college in this area provides similar education and training needed to obtain these high-skills, high-wage and high-demand jobs.
The ETEC program enables students to graduate with a certificate of achievement in four semesters (two years). There are two areas of specialization: electrical technician or instrumentation technician. The electrical technician specialization is designed to train electricians to maintain complex electrical automation systems used in the manufacturing and power generation industry. The instrumentation technician specialization is designed to train instrument technicians to maintain the process measurement and control systems used in refineries, chemical plants, biotech plants, pharmaceutical plants, water and waste treatment plants.
Electrical & Electronic Engineering Technicians: $17.28 - $44.40/hour
Electrical & Electronic Repairer, Commercial and Industrial Equipment: $16.30-$39.06/hour
For the Associate of Science Degree in Electrical/Instrumentation Technology complete the coursework listed above as well as the General Education requirements. Courses in the first three-semesters are common to both areas of specialization. In the fourth semester, the courses for each specialization vary, with the electrical technicians concentrating on the skills needed for electrical maintenance while the Instrumentation Technicians concentrate on the measurement and control of processes.
For the Certificate of Achievement in Electrical/Instrumentation Technology, complete the coursework listed above. Consult with a Los Medanos College counselor to develop an education plan.
