WECA's Fresno training facility hosts Fresno City Councilmember; BizFed for tour

Thursday, April 6, 2023

WECA was pleased to host Fresno City Councilmember Mike Karbassi and BizFed Central Valley for a tour of WECA's Fresno training facility on March 24.

Rex Hime, WECA's Regional Relationship Manager for Fresno and the Central Valley, and George Leach, Fresno's Lead Electrician Apprenticeship instructor, gave Councilmember Karbassi and BizFed Central Valley a live, behind-the-scenes look of first year, first semester Commercial Electrical Apprentices in action as they completed a hands-on lab.

"Walking Councilmember Karbassi and BizFed Central Valley through WECA's Fresno training facility -- and talking with instructor George Leach about pathways and benefits for our apprentices and trainees -- showed the critical role in workforce development going on in WECA's programs," says Rex. "As local and state politics play more of a role in opportunities for our contractors and their employees to work, education on our programs and philosophies are becoming increasingly important with every passing day."

Thank you, Councilmember Karbassi and BizFed Central Valley, for visiting WECA's Fresno training facility! Your support helps strengthen workforce development opportunities for WECA's member contractors and their employees in the Central Valley and beyond!
