Pepco, D.C. Government Honor Latest Infrastructure Academy Graduates

Pepco and the District of Columbia’s Department of Employment Services, along with the D.C. Infrastructure Academy, recently celebrated the latest graduates of the Pepco Utility Training School program.

The first class of 2021 included 19 graduates, with 90 percent of the participants being from Wards 7 and 8 and on track to receive job offers by June, according to Pepco.

“I am honored to be a part of celebrating the first graduates of the DCIA Pepco Utility Training School Program,” D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser said in a statement. “These graduates have received quality training that has prepared them for high-paying jobs of the future. Shining stars like them will lead our economic recovery.”

With Pepco having expanded its support of the DCIA earlier this year with hopes of attracting 100 participants, its partnership with the Washington Interfaith Network enables the utility company to strive for fair and equitable wages and increased job opportunities for city residents.

“Innovative partnerships with employers like Pepco allow the Department of Employment Services to help Washingtonians prepare for high-demand, good-paying careers,” said DOES Director Unique Morris-Hughes. “This is particularly important for traditionally underserved communities in Wards 7 and 8. We are proud to support these graduates as they begin their next steps.”
