Recently graduated engineers participate in an eighteen-month rotational training and development program. This program includes classroom training courses, mentoring, field trips, networking events and job shadowing.
Rotations provide a new engineer with hands-on experience and valuable insight to the ins and outs of working in a utility. We offer tracks in our Electric Operations Transmission and Distribution organizations and Gas Operations Transmission and Distribution organizations. Upon completion of the training program, new engineers will have acquired the background and experience needed to perform their job upon completion of the development program.
Each ERDP engineer has the opportunity to complete certificate courses through Stanford University’s Center for Professional Development while in the program.
PG&E's MIT Program prepares new college hires for leadership roles in the Customer Operations team. Shortly following their start date, program participants are immersed in a classroom-based learning environment which takes them through the foundations of the organization. The in-class learning seminars are complemented by field department site visits to provide a vital background of the organization and key departments. Besides the departments themselves, other key learning topics include:
Program participants receive a comprehensive experience of the organization and foundational skills that will contribute to success in their new role.
The focal point of this program is to develop future leaders for PG&E. By bringing in new talent, we are actively promoting Diversity and Inclusion, we are continuing our effort to deliver an exceptional customer experience to each and every customer, and we are supporting our overall vision to be the leading utility in the nation.
