electrician and low voltage apprenticeship and education programs

Over 100 high school girls attended the Sierra College one-day Nontraditional Employment for Women (NEW) event in Rocklin. Representatives from companies like SMUD and Intel were also there to encourage girls to continue their education in support of technical and skilled careers.

WECA was happy to have two of its apprenticeship graduates there to share their training and career experiences. 

Autumn Jackson discusses her WECA Apprenticeship with students.

Kristen Pease graduated from WECA's Commercial Apprenticeship Program in 2009.

Thank you to Autumn and Kristen for sharing your experiences and highlighting the opportunities of going into the electrical trades!
