Apprenticeships

Learn and Earn with Operations and Maintenance Apprentice Opportunities

Mennel’s Apprenticeship Program is ideal for high school or community college/tech school graduates who reside in or adjacent to the counties in which Mennel operates. The selected candidates will enter the program as summer help while completing the 90-day introductory period. 

On-the-job training and job shadowing responsibilities are key benefits of the program. Apprentices work full time at an assigned Mennel facility gaining real-world, practical experience.

Operations Apprenticeship: Candidates will spend the first year in core curriculum classes with a focus on electrical and fundamentals of leadership. Year two will include participation in one of two industry short courses.
