Successful students may be placed into On the Job Training (OJT) opportunities for 16 weeks with partner companies, such as Pike Electric, Lee Construction, 5-Star Electric, Nichols Construction, CST Utilities, River City Electric, Team Fishel, AEP, and Davis H. Elliot.  This On the Job Training opportunity will occur during the D-200 and D-300 online classes.

Upon completion of this 900-hour program, students may be hired by one of BridgeValley’s energy partners and can work to receive a journeyman’s certificate from the employer.  The journeyman student can complete 15 credit hours and earn an AAS degree in Occupational Development..

All students receiving On the Job Training must complete an Apprentice Card every 30 days in the field and must also complete all online work in a timely manner.
