OPPORTUNITIES for CAREER GROWTH THROUGH HIGHER EDUCATION

logo
If you’ve ever thought about furthering your education, IBEW partner Excelsior College may have the online program for you.

On April 11, the non-profit, fully accredited institution is holding a virtual “Open Admit Day” for IBEW members who would like to discuss their higher education options. Thirty-minute appointments are available with IBEW Workforce Partnership Ambassador Stephanie Cietek from 8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m. EDT, where she can help answer questions about available degree programs and how to apply.

“We see a lot of our members take advantage of Excelsior’s programs,” said International Representative Anna Jerry, who serves the IBEW’s Utility Department. “Some people need degrees to make a move into management. Others just want to stay competitive in shifting job markets or to change careers altogether,” she said. “Higher education, particularly when it’s online and fits into a busy work schedule, can be a great back up plan for a lot of people.”

Excelsior is unique in that it offers generous course credits for company-provided training programs and certifications, many of which are applicable to the institution’s degree programs. “It’s a nice benefit,” Jerry said. “You’ve already done the work, so it helps not to have to pay for it a second time.”

Excelsior offers degree programs in technology and engineering, business, nursing and more. A full listing can be found on its website.

Those interested in participating in the Open Admit Day should contact Cietek by email at scietek@excelsior.edu or by phone at (518) 608-8165.

Breakfast with Tennessee State legislatures

TSEWA MEETS WITH TENNESSEE LEGISLATURES DURING BREAKFAST

On Tuesday March 21, The Tennessee State Electrical Workers Association was in Nashville to meet with the senate and house leaders of Tennessee. The social gathering provided the opportunity to discuss our concerns with the legislature, in a friendly setting, about the challenges we face on both sides in our state concerning the future of education programs in the skilled labor trades. Representing east Tennessee was Tim Tate, JR Cummings and Jason Leary. The goal was to let our legislatures know about the training we have provided since 1941 in our apprenticeship programs and beyond. With the demand ever increasing of skilled labor, apprenticeships are a great alternative to a college degree that is commonplace. Working with one’s hands is a very rewarding and stable future. Francis of Assisi explained it best when he said “He who works with his hands is a laborer. He who works with his hands and his head is a craftsman. He who works with his hands and his head and his heart is an artist.” The DOL certified apprenticeships offered by the TSEWA and the IBEW are looking to create the next generation of artists and promote a future that offers any individual a high standard of living for themselves and their families.
