FirstEnergy’s Power Systems Institute (PSI) is working to fill the skills gap by creating opportunities for Preston High students to get free training and good-paying jobs soon after graduation. PSI offers students a two-year program that combines classroom learning with hands on training. Students who complete the program earn a degree in electric utility technology, which can translate to jobs as a line worker or substation electrician with either of the two affiliated electrical companies. Nearly 1,700 students have graduated from the program since 2000.
