The program will start the fall semester of 2012. Applicants apply to the program through Northwestern CT Community College.
First time users will need to create an account.
The first step in the process requires applicants to take a college placement test (CPT) to place into college level math, reading and English. In addition, the applicant will need to complete an application through Northwestern CT Community College in its entirety.
If Northwestern CT Community College considers the applicant academically eligible, their application will be forwarded to CL&P.
Successful candidates will be contacted by the Northeast Utilities Human Resources Department for job placement screening. As part of the application for admission to this program, students sign a release form so that CL&P can conduct a formal background check, a Driving Record check and a drug and alcohol screen.
After successful completion of these screenings, the applicant must then pass a physical prescreen designed to test their strength and ability and a hands-on skills assessment at the CL&P Training Center.
The last step of the process includes a formal interview with Northeast Utilities Human Resources and CL&P management.
In addition, students accepted into the program must pass the Construction and Skills Trade (CAST) test within the first six months of being accepted into the program.
*Applicant must be a U.S. citizen or have U.S. Work Authorization and at least 18 years of age as of September 4, 2012 (for the class starting in September 2012).
