12 New Natural Gas Mechanics Complete Comprehensive Training Program and Join PECO’s Front Lines

PECO welcomed 12 new apprentice mechanics to the company’s field force
yesterday as they celebrated their graduation from a comprehensive
natural gas training program. The new apprentices, along with 12
mechanics who graduated in April 2017, will join the utility’s front
lines – helping to ensure safe and reliable natural gas service for more
than 516,000 area customers.

“We are excited to bolster our workforce at PECO with our newest class
of natural gas mechanics,” said Ron Bradley, vice president of Gas
Operations. “They will play an integral role in delivering safe and
reliable natural gas to our customers and I’m proud to welcome them to
the team.”

PECO’s training program develops the fundamental skills new apprentice
mechanics need to work safely on the company’s natural gas distribution
system. More than 530 people applied for this program. These apprentices
were selected after a series of interviews and physical assessments.

PECO’s Training department develops the curriculum for the natural gas
training program and seasoned natural gas mechanics instruct and oversee
the field work of the trainees. In addition to field maintenance and
repair skills, the program focuses on natural gas fundamentals, quality
customer interactions, emergency response, safety and first aid.
