National Grid Launches Industry Leading Gas Certificate Program
Partners with Farmingdale State College
National Grid has created a new curriculum with Farmingdale State College (SUNY) to offer our first ever Natural Gas Technician Certificate Program. This is a 12‐week program that is targeted towards individuals seeking career opportunities in the growing natural gas industry. Students that successfully complete this program will receive consideration for new job opportunities within the company.
“We’re really excited about this partnership. It is a first of its kind for the natural gas industry,” said Ken Daly, President of National Grid New York. “Our hope is that we can perfect it downstate, and use it to bring new talent to our workforce. And then, the opportunity is to replicate it and bring the same program upstate.”
The first class of 12 students recently graduated and all were hired by the company. The second class will begin in the end of January. For more details, check out our video about the program.
