    About the Instructor

    The Electrical Maintenance program is taught by Prime Rimando. Prime Rimando is our new Silicon Valley Career Technical Education (SVCTE) Electrical Instructor, and though his previous company allowed him to travel the nation and work with high tech green power (electrical innovations), he decided the best way for him to make a difference was to teach.

His goal for his students is for them to carry on the knowledge they learned from his class
