Dan Puente founded DP Electric in 1990 with the vision of creating a company that values employees, is service-oriented, and delivers quality work. He started DP Electric in his garage, utilizing 10 years of experience in the electrical industry.
Dan’s vision for DP Electric was on quality, service, integrity, excellence, and opportunity for all employees. To this day, these remain company principles. Through these principles, Dan saw a need for an education program that fit the needs of his employees. This eventually led to the creation of DP University.
The DP University apprenticeship program was designed to fit the needs of our employees and clients while also meeting the requirements set forth by the NCCER. To this day we have over 100 active students working towards earning their journeyman certificates.
