Power Equipment offers a robust apprenticeship program which combines on-the-job training with academic instruction for those technicians that are first entering the workforce or who have limited on the job experience. Power’s apprenticeship program is 24 months long and offers technicians the opportunity to be full time employees of Power while gaining knowledge and building experience around our products and services.
