ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — As unemployment rates continue to hover at historically high rates, training for a new career field may be an option.

The Atlantic County Workforce Development Board, in collaboration with Atlantic Cape Community College, is offering the opportunity to participate in the Atlantic City Electric Quick Path to Energy Program.  This program offers Career and Technical Education Training designed to introduce students to career pathways within the utility industry. 

The classes will include an introduction to jobs in the utility industry, a construction math class that prepares students for the Construction and Skills Trade (CAST) exam and certification.  Students who successfully pass the CAST test will qualify for the Line School that offers skill practice in preparation for the physical abilities test.

At the end of the program, successful participants may have the opportunity to complete the pre-employment process, including an interview with Atlantic City Electric or another industry-leading company in the utility industry.
