Empowering Our Local Communities through Thriving Partnerships
Our management team has been very strategic by adding key subject matter experts to “Team BarTech.” Our goal is to help build a sustainable workforce in the utility sector as we will see a considerable loss of seasoned tradesmen due to attrition in the next five to seven years. We rely on their wealth of knowledge and experience in various specialties to provide insight, guidance and training in the following areas:
• Training interns
• Contributing to internal training and reference materials
• Providing hands-on mentorship to entry-level personnel
We take great pride building alliances with programs and companies to provide viable career paths for our local communities. To do our part in assisting those interested in the pursuing careers in the electrical field, we have partnered with the following entities to provide a launching pad for up-and-coming electrical and construction workers.
Dawson Tech Overhead Electrical Line Worker Program
In 2009, President and CEO, Dwayne K. Barlow used his expertise to assist in the development of the Dawson Tech Overhead Electrical Line Worker Program, a College Accredited Curriculum through the City Colleges of Chicago. The 30 credit hour certificate program prepares students for immediate entry into the field as an electrical power line installer or overhead electrical line worker.
The CONSTRUCT program is dedicated to diversifying the pool of candidates for construction-related jobs. We are proud to participate in this program by providing internship opportunities and entry-level positions on a host of construction projects.
Strategic partnerships and alliances are beneficial to our company growth and expansion of resources and expertise. Below is a list of valued partners.
