Getting Started with High School Electrical Trades

Thursday May, 9th - 2–2:45pm

Virtual - Zoom: https://mainestate.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_20FF6tbaTgiv-WySZ1Rq2Q

The electrical trade is critical to Maine’s infrastructure and its economic competitiveness. As more and more students see the value in pursuing careers in the trade industry, CTE schools may find it difficult to keep up with the wave of interested students. Advanced Technical Schooling (ATS) brings an innovative and simple solution to this problem. Join us as ATS (an approved electrical program by the US Department of Labor) presents its options to area high schools. Foster Career & Technical Education will also highlight what you can expect and experience in developing such a program.
