Casper College is offering no-cost- training for qualified individuals to become pipefitters or to enter a plumbing apprenticeship in just 10 weeks.

“Those who successfully complete the Casper College Plumbing Technician Program can make as much as $40,000 annually in Natrona County and work in an industry that cannot be outsourced or automated,” said Ashley Mikels, workforce training specialist at Casper College.

According to Mikels, Casper College’s ETSS program will provide free training to low-income parenting adults, men and women, to get them started in the plumbing industry, which is expected to grow 26 percent from 2010 to 2020. Applications are now being accepted through Thursday, April 10, 2014 for the program, which will start this summer. The program includes hands-on job training, life skills training, professional development, continuing education credits, career counseling, community involvement, and books and supplies.

To participate in the program individuals must be a parenting adult of children 17 years old or younger, income qualify, complete an interview and program screening, and commit to attend all class and program sessions.

To apply or find out more interested persons should contact Mikels at 307-268-2124 or to determine if they are eligible. The ten-week training will begin during the summer of 2014.

The Casper College Plumbing Technician Program is funded by a grant awarded by the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.
