Independent Electrical Contractors Chesapeake, the Odenton firm hired by the Anne Arundel County Job Center to prepare clients in low-wage, low-skill jobs for apprenticeships in electrical or related jobs, will graduate another class in two weeks.
The six who graduate Dec. 17 will bring to 13 the number of graduates of the three-month program, which started in the spring. Of those, seven will be enrolled in electrical apprenticeships by January, and four more have jobs in the field, a program official said.
The Anne Arundel Department of Social Services pays approximately $5,000 per student for clients it sends for training. The State Department of Education's Division of Rehabilitation Services will send a student to the January class, and the Baltimore Urban League might send people for training, said Jeff Lowman, education director at Independent Electrical Contractors Chesapeake.
