PowerPathway Training Schedule

Customized coursework has been developed in partnership with PG&E to help prepare students for entry- and apprentice-level careers and pre-employment testing at PG&E and other utilities.

While PG&E is committed to carefully considering and evaluating all applicants who successfully complete PowerPathway courses, course enrollment or completion does not automatically guarantee employment with PG&E.

Applications submitted for enrollment undergo rigorous pre-screening. Program enrollment is limited and eligibility requirements apply. Courses may lead to certificates of completion and college credit, and will open for enrollment up to three months before course start date.
