    About the Instructor 

    Tony Gutierrez graduated from SVCTE’s electrical maintenance program in 2000. Shortly after, he got into a Local 332 Inside apprenticeship program. Gutierrez turned out of the apprenticeship in 2005 and then became a journeyman. After a few years, he became a foreman and he eventually worked his way up to general foreman. Gutierrez is still a member in good standing of IBEW LOCAL 332. His goal for the Electrical Maintenance program is to make his students the best candidates possible for future apprenticeship classes.

    Why do you teach Career and Technical Education? 

    I came to this school and want the students to have the same opportunities that I did.
