Recently, the Satilla REMC Foundation donated $10,000 to the Coastal Pines Technical College (CPTC) Foundation. Their donation will be used toward scholarships for the Electrical Lineworker Program. The funds will be used to directly support the students and their costs associated with the program, including tuition, books and supplies. They made another $10,000 donation to the general scholarship fund as well. This donation will help any student at Coastal Pines who needs additional financial assistance with tuition, fees, and books.
“As a result of donations by generous community partners like Satilla REMC, Coastal Pines Technical College is able to assist our students financially while they are training for high-demand careers. Increasing the number of skilled graduates in return builds our local workforce and helps our local employers seeking highly qualified and skilled employees.” states Dr. Glenn Deibert, President of Coastal Pines Technical College.
The Electrical Lineworker certificate program provides students with the necessary knowledge and skill to gain employment as an entry-level lineworker with electrical utility companies, both public and private. This program can be completed in eight weeks. For more information, please visit http://www.coastalpines.edu/programs/electrical-lineworker/.
