Water Industry Internships, Funded by MAWIB

Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board, The Water Council and Milwaukee Area Technical College are working together to offer training and paid internships for entry-level jobs in the Water Industry.

All interns will be current students, or graduates, of the MATC Water Technician Certificate Program; a program endorsed by The Water Council as a set of industry-identified skills that are required for entry-level technical jobs.

This program is funded through a $1 million US Department of Labor Jobs and Innovation Accelerator Challenge Grant. Intern wages are paid by Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board, up to $2,100 total, for each internship.
