OREGON CITY - Clackamas Community College is expanding its
Energy and Utility Resource Management program to help meet the
need for skilled utility workers. CCC's Wilsonville campus will
offer two new pathway certificates beginning fall 2014 for Utility
Field Technician and Occupational Health and Safety.
CCC's Wilsonville campus currently offers several on-site energy
and resource management programs that are tailored to meet
workforce needs. These include: Energy and Resource Management,
Utility Trades Preparation: Lineworker and Utility Workforce
CCC's energy and resource management programs prepare students
for a variety of utility jobs and apprenticeship opportunities with
different agencies and businesses nation-wide.
"A wave of utility workers across the nation is nearing
retirement, and additional skilled workers will be needed to fill
job openings," says Tracy.
The new CCC pathway certificates in Utility Field Technician and
Occupational Health and Safety were developed in response to the
needs of local businesses. "Employers are looking for skilled
utility workers to fill job openings. CCC is reacting to this
workforce need by offering affordable education and training and
adding new pathway certificates," Tracy said.
