A well-trained energy workforce is an important piece of our nation’s economy and plays a vital role in maintaining our energy independence. Unfortunately, the energy industry is currently faced with several employment challenges:
- The average age of workers in the energy industry is now over 50, and up to half of the industry’s current workforce will retire within five to 10 years.
- As new power plants are constructed and new technologies are adopted, employers will need to hire additional employees.
- Existing training programs cannot meet demand due to the rapid advancement of technology and industry growth.
Constellation Energy Nuclear Group (CENG) has developed strong Educational Partnerships to maintain a robust pipeline of highly skilled, educated and local workers that share our commitment to safety and our pride in the communities we serve. CENG works with both two-year community colleges and four-year universities.
