Tampa Electric (TECO) and Hillsborough Community College (HCC) are teaming up to launch the Electrical Line Workers Training Program. The partners celebrated the new program this week with a ribbon cutting at HCC’s Brandon campus.
The program is designed to provide students fundamental knowledge and skills to pursue careers in the electric utility industry.
TECO has pledged more than $300,000 annually for scholarships and equipment for the program. Students who complete the program will have the chance to interview with TECO for entry-level positions.
The program is expected to begin Sept. 5 and will run through Dec. 13. Tuition is $6,500.
