“Michigan has become the new center of the world’s electric vehicle and advanced energy storage industries. Automotive manufacturers and their suppliers project a need for over 1,000 additional engineers and technicians over the next five years that are trained to work in hybrid vehicle design and manufacturing.
Michigan is also beginning to make the switch to renewable energy to remain economically viable and prtect our environment.
To help train a skilled workforce for these jobs, the State of Michigan is offering State Energy Sector Partnership Grant funds to train qualified dislocated workers or unemployed adults in the skills required to secure employment in these industries.
Educational programs funded by the grant include Wayne State University’s 3-course Graduate Certificate in Electric-Drive Vehicle Engineering, WSU’s Undergraduate Certificate in Advanced Energy Storage, Macomb Community College’s 2-course Certificate in Advanced Energy Storage, and Henry Ford Community College’s Basic Certificate in Alternative Energy. In addition, Michigan Work’s professional staff will work with graduates to help them with their job search.
To learn more and to determine if you are eligible to have your training fully funded by this grant please contact David Shevrin at 248-788-9511 or firstname.lastname@example.org, or Kris Betts at 586-263-8388 or email@example.com.
