We’re recruiting Intern-Apprentices


On Saturday, April 6th parents and their high school seniors are invited to attend an informational session on the Cleveland Public Power Student-Apprentice Program slated to begin in August 2019.

The Student-Apprentice Program seeks highly motivated and disciplined students to begin a career with the public utility. Successful candidates must graduate from a Cleveland Metropolitan School District (CMSD) high school, be at least 18 years old by the September following graduation; have a proven record of commitment to their schooling by demonstrating a 93 percent attendance rate over four years and a 2.5 cumulative grade point average.

The program combines supervised on-the-job training with classroom instruction to teach students the practical and theoretical aspects of a highly skilled occupation. Paid on-the-job training helps them gain entry into a high-wage occupation while they learn!

Each selected candidate will begin the program as a Student Assistant where they will gain first-hand insight into the trade. Through on the job instruction, mentoring, field training and demonstrations, they will be exposed to many exciting and fast-growing career fields.

After completing the training candidates will transition to the position of Intern Apprentice. In this capacity, they are given the opportunity to choose one of the following career paths: Line Worker, Cable Splicer, Electric Meter Installer, Transformer Repair Worker, Low Tension Line Worker, Line Helper Driver or Gas Turbine Mechanic.

This past weekend Cleveland Public Power hosted a Workshop in preparation for the 1st Annual Solar Sprint to be held as part of its Public Power Week Open House on Saturday, October 11th.

Twelve teams registered for the event, with the Cleveland Municipal School District’s Charles A. Mooney Mustangs entering four for the most from any organization or group!

During the Workshop CPP Electrician Austin Taylor went over the basic construction of the solar powered cars provided to the students and fielded questions.

At the end of the session the students were pumped and ready to begin designing their own vehicles.  In addition to CMSD the Sprint will feature teams from the Westside Boys and Girls Club, the Cleveland Metropolitan Housing Authority’s Outhwaite Homes, and St. Dominic School.
