About the Utilities and Energy Coordination Network
Leading the Utilities and Energy Coordination Network (UCEN)’s efforts is Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. NWTC is a two-year technical college with a long history of fostering partnerships to provide educational and training opportunities for the development of a skilled workforce. NWTC has one of the widest varieties of utility-related programming in the Midwest. The College offers associate degrees, technical diplomas, and certificates covering Utilities Engineering Technology, Solar Energy Technology, Energy Management Technology, Electrical Power Distribution Gas Utility Construction and Service, and Telecommunications. The College is also home to Lineworker and Substation apprenticeships.
The goal of the UCEN is to build on this expertise and give education, industry, and professional organizations a platform to share resources and form partnerships that will lead to expanded training opportunities across the country. The Network will also continue virtual communication to ensure long-term sustainability.
