Southern California Edison, serving almost 14 million people, launched an extensive program in 2011, featuring incentives for both contractors and customers. Technicians must be industry certified, and companies must employ at least 50% certified technicians to participate in the program.
- ItsAboutQ is the dedicated program for Southern California Edison, powered by HVACRedu.net.
- This scholarship program supports the necessary education and training for technicians based in Southern California to acquire industry recognized stackable credentials. In most cases the courses and programs are available to Southern California students and technicians at no fee-to-you. In certain cases a registration fee of $175 is required.
Technicians who qualify train free, and upon completion of their customized training plans, first receive access to TekAssist, an assessment driven review to practice taking certification exams. Once a technician has successfully completed a review with TekAssist and is ready to take their exam, they receive a prepaid voucher which they must present at the exam location.
Our students pass the NATE Core exam at a rate of 94%, and the various NATE specialty exams at rates between 80% and 91%.
- We do what we do extremely well, and we can help you do well, too.
- This program can be replicated for any Electric Energy Utility in the interest of workforce development.
