WEBINAR: Consumers Energy Lineworker Apprentice Program

December 3 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST

Building on its legacy as a top workplace for veterans, Consumers Energy is recruiting military veterans with electric experience to join its new Basic Electric Lineworker Apprentice program, earning $35 per hour following 10 days of free training.

“We value the skills and strengths our country’s military veterans bring to work every day,” said Guy Packard, vice president of electric operations for Consumers Energy and Navy Reserve veteran. “Electric lines work is a high-demand occupation that is physically challenging and requires a high degree of mental discipline. Veterans have an excellent track record of career success at Consumers Energy.”

Consumers Energy ranks highly as a workplace for veterans. The energy provider is recognized as a Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency Gold-Level Employer and ranked 3rd in Michigan in the Military Times Best for Vets Employers 2020 list.

This topic is best suited for any veteran or transitioning servicemember who has a foundational knowledge of electrical functionality; specifically safety, basics of electricity, energy industry basics,  and who is interested in attending a free ten-day, pre-apprenticeship training provided by Consumers Energy in Potterville, Michigan.
