In response to the increasing demand for certified electricians to meet the challenges of transitioning to a clean energy future, ReVision Energy launched a state-certified training education program in 2018. This innovative program is the first of its kind in the nation, providing trainees with the trade skills and licensing that will set them up for a lifetime of success. The training center is also a valuable recruiting tool for Revision Energy in hiring women and minorities in all positions within the company. In this session we will discuss how the training center works, how employee owners enroll and participate in the program, and share some of our successes and lessons learned.
