Apprenticeships in the Energy Industry

The energy industry offers a host of apprenticeship programs that prepare men and women for dynamic, rewarding, and well-paying careers that power life. Our professionals are problem solvers and critical thinkers who serve on the front lines of the country’s clean energy transition. They are first responders who rebuild infrastructure and restore power following storms and natural disasters and they protect and maintain the electric grid that is essential to the way we live. These professionals are highly trained, highly skilled, and proud of the impact their work has on communities across the country. And they are in high demand! The industry expects to fill 215,000 positions over the next three years alone.

Apprenticeships are a critical component of the doors that are opening for a new energy workforce in need of training, skills development, mentoring, and on-the-job training.

There are HUNDREDS of apprenticeships that are available in the energy industry. We need thinkers and tinkerers. We need outdoor enthusiasts, doers, gadgeteers, creators, and fixers. We need men and women who like heights and those who prefer to work underground, and we need those who bring a host of other talents to America’s electric grid.
