Water Distribution Training
Nine corpsmembers recently completed a Water Distribution course taught by a representative of the San Jose Water Company. The class was given over 18 Saturdays, providing corpsmembers with the skills to take the D 1 Certificate exam. Two of the corpsmembers received college credit through a Gavilan College class.
The Water Distribution training gives corpsmembers the ability to check backflow systems, water systems and irrigation systems and prep them to do treatment plant work as well.
Those with D 1 certificates are in high demand and may find jobs with water utility companies at starting salaries of $18/hour or more.
California Energy Service Corps accepting applications
Twenty corpsmembers will take part in a one-year paid training program to learn to administer and implement energy-efficiency programs. They’ll work with low-income households in Monterey, San Benito and Santa Cruz counties beginning in November. The work will be conducted under the supervision of industry professionals at Central Coast Energy Services in Watsonville.
