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.
If you are interested in hosting an intern at your water-related company, please contact either Jeff Hopton, Milwaukee Area Worforce Investment Board, by phone: (414) 270-1726 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org, or Elizabeth Thelen, The Water Council, by email: email@example.com, for resources on getting started.
