TCEC Students Explore Electrical Apprenticeships
The TCEC students participated in the Metropolitan Detroit Explorers Apprenticeship Program by touring the Detroit Electrical Industry Training Center in Warren on Thursday, November 18th. Students learned the requirements for applying to and participating in the Electrician's Apprenticeship Program, toured the training facility and had the opportunity to bend some conduit with tools in the workshop. The Explorers Apprenticeship Program meets once a month at a different Apprenticeship Training Program offering students a first hand look at the facilities and allows them to have discussions with trainers and employees including opportunities to apply to the programs. TCEC is planning to attend the next session in January at the Plumbers Apprenticeship Training Program.
