The electric power industry and its workforce continue to evolve, but one thing remains constant – the need for knowledgeable and skilled workers. The EPCE Coalition Meeting provides utilities the opportunity to discuss, network and learn relevant ideas to support initiatives that develop, educate and train the energy industry’s workforce. We welcome you to attend the EPCE Coalition meeting.
Energy Providers Coalition for Education (EPCE) is a national industry coalition working collaboratively on workforce development solutions, translating what would be separate individual efforts into a national, industry-wide solution.
Meeting Topics Include:
Online education and training resources to support your organization’s workforce development initiatives such as apprenticeship training, professional development, employee career progression, leadership training, and more
Interactive, technical learning tools designed to develop a skilled and knowledgeable energy employee
Best practices to develop a skilled and prepared workforce that save time, staff resources, and expenses from peers and industry experts
Effective practices to support knowledge transfer, retention and training
Interactive roundtable discussions to support benchmarking utility training practices
EPCE’s membership consists of IOU’s, national and regional associations representing co-operative and municipal utilities, government agencies, professional associations, IBEW and local unions, representing over 75%+ of the utility industry and over 2,500 EPCE member organizations.
