​​​​​​​Workforce Development Program

Atlantic City Electric is partnering with three southern New Jersey vocational schools and four local workforce development boards to facilitate a comprehensive workforce development program aimed at educating the clean energy workforce of tomorrow. The initiative includes four programs:

  • The Get into Energy Math and Boot Camp workshop is focused on applied math skills specific to the energy industry and teaches concepts that are critical to success for energy industry job opportunities. The workshop provides individuals with the necessary math concepts required to successfully complete employment testing for jobs in the energy industry. 
  • The Women in Sustainable Employment (WISE) Pathway is a course designed for women to explore non-traditional, in-demand jobs in the construction, gas, water, electric, and energy industries. The program is a 40-hour curriculum that provides women the opportunity to learn about career paths in these related fields.
  • The Atlantic City Electric Line School is a four-week program offering hands-on instruction to students seeking a career in the energy industry as a line worker. The course covers the fundamentals of line work and provides class participants with training in the areas of bucket truck and equipment operations.
  • The High School Energy Career Academy is a four-year program focused on preparing students in grades nine through 12, for entering post-secondary education or moving directly to employment with a utility company. The extensive program model not only helps students to build their knowledge of the energy industry, it also includes employability skills and integrated academic components as well.
