What high-paying career opportunities are available in the field of energy and industrial technology?
You can learn more about training for a career in this high-demand field at two open houses, Thursday, February 28, at the Coronado Generating Station in St. Johns; and Thursday, March 21, at the Springerville Tucson Electric Power plant. Both open houses will be from 6 to 8 p.m. You must pre-register at least two days in advanced of the open houses. To pre-register, contact EIT instructor Kevin Westfall, 524-7455 or email.
Northland Pioneer College and the Northern Arizona Vocational Institute of Technology (NAVIT) partner with regional power plant operators to prepare workers in eight specializations. “These skills are utilized in energy generation and throughout the manufacturing industry,” notes NPC instructor Kevin Westfall. “Our local energy generating partners are looking for skilled workers to replace their retiring workforce, and manufacturers are competing for individuals with these same skills sets as well.”
Parents, if your high school student is interested in a career as an energy industrial technician (EIT), an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree is available at little or no cost. High school juniors and seniors can enroll in NPC vocational courses, including EIT, through NAVIT, which covers tuition, fees and most supplies. For more information, come to the open houses, or contact the NAVIT counselor at your local high school.
