CFECA Supports CFCC Electrical Apprentices
WILMINGTON, NC — The Cape Fear Community College Electrical Apprenticeship program recently received $6,000 from the Cape Fear Electrical Contractors Association (CFECA) to award scholarships to the program’s electrical apprentices.
Scholarships will be awarded to dedicated apprentices at the end of their first year to help offset the cost of tools, books, and other supplies essential to the electrical trade.
“CFECA’s support of CFCC apprentices is a true investment in our community” said John Downing, CFCC Vice President of Economic and Workforce Development. “This generous gesture will help our apprentices persevere in the trade and continue to positively impact their families and our local economy.”
“The Cape Fear Electrical Contractors Association, Inc., is proud to dedicate this ongoing scholarship partnership with CFCC,” said Burton Vezina, Cape Fear Electrical Contractors Association, Inc. President. “This scholarship is made in memory of Robert C. Massengill, was a consummate learner throughout his entire life and an example of the maxim ‘you’re never too old to learn.’”
CFCC’s certified, four-year Electrical Apprenticeship program prepares skilled craftsmen with on-the-job training. In August of 2018, CFCC registered a group Electrician’s Apprenticeship program with ApprenticeshipNC. Beginning with two participating employers and 12 students, the program now has 16 participating employers and 70 students.
