Spotlight: Capital Community College and Eversource
In June of 2021, we celebrated the graduation of the inaugural class of our Electric Lineworker Certificate Program at Capital Community College in Hartford, Connecticut.
15 students from across Connecticut spent 11 weeks preparing to work in a variety of electrical fields. Of the 15 students, nine were BIPOC.
We also provided funding so that many of the students, who would not otherwise have been able to afford the training, had the opportunity to learn a valuable new skill.
This program is designed to develop a new generation of diverse lineworkers in Connecticut, ensuring an ongoing supply of talent with the opportunity to work and thrive in this highly skilled role.
We've developed several unique programs designed to attract, develop and retain a diverse workforce, in meaningful partnership with local community colleges in the three states we serve.
