When hired to be a part of the Miller team, our newest electricians are given the support and training needed to hit the ground running. A new Construction Wireman Bootcamp is just an extra tool in that toolbox.
The three-day course had hands-on exercises for properly lifting common items in the field such as conduit, transformers, and ladders and how to do it without hurting themselves. It also included instruction for lifting heavier objects as a team.
The kickoff Bootcamp received positive feedback from participants who expressed gratitude for the effort to make them feel safer, included, and more knowledgeable.
The curriculum included:
* Explanation of the ETA apprenticeship program and career path along with a tour of the classrooms and labs
* Miller swag raffle
* 1/2 Day – Tool & Material recognition and hands-on conduit bending practice
The next scheduled Bootcamp is February 1-3.
