As one of the nation’s largest energy companies, we understand it takes a large workforce of highly trained, dedicated and motivated men and women to generate and deliver electricity safely and reliably. So, we’ve teamed up with colleges and universities across our service territory to train the next generation of employees in line and substation work.

  • Westmoreland County Community College – Youngwood, Pa.
  • Pierpont Community and Technical College – Fairmont, W.Va.

Established by FirstEnergy in 2000, the Power Systems Institute (PSI) is a unique, two-year program that combines classroom learning with hands-on training. Students who successfully complete the program earn either an Associate of Applied Science or Associate of Technical Studies degree in Electric Utility Technology.
