Electric companies across the country are establishing infrastructure academies and enhancing their workforce training programs. These programs enable electric companies to develop a highly skilled, diverse, and inclusive workforce of tomorrow, while offering rewarding career opportunities in the communities they serve.
On today’s show, Terrell Lockhart, Distribution Operations Manager at DTE Energy, and Clint Williams, an IBEW Local 17 representative, discuss the DTE Tree Trimming Academy that they both help lead. Kelly Ann DeCurtis, Director of Talent Management at Exelon, also joins us to discuss Pepco’s partnership with the D.C. Infrastructure Academy to operate the Pepco Utility Training School. Both programs are helping people in the communities these companies serve gain the skills they need for rewarding careers in the electric power industry.
