Crim was honored at an event on campus April 10.

The apprenticeship program is a joint effort between the SETC and the CSU and is certified by the California Department of Apprenticeship Standards.

“The joint apprenticeship program is a strong example of the union and the university working together to provide career training and opportunities for employees,” said Tony Simpson, senior director of facilities services.

Crim is now a fully qualified Journey Level electrician.

University administrators, staff, SETC members and representatives from the CSU Chancellor’s Office attended the special ceremony at the Obershaw Dining Room on campus.
