  • Bellingham, Washington – November 5, 2018

    Bellingham Technical College (BTC) Electrician program students will be able to enhance their technical training following the donation of cutting-edge service panels and panel boards (breaker boxes), including standard and combination AFCI/GFCI circuit breakers, from Siemens.

    Representatives from Siemens — a global leader in power distribution, control, energy management equipment — will tour BTC’s Electrician program and work with students on the new equipment Wednesday, November 7.

    “Siemens’ generous donation allows students to gain hands-on, industry-standard training on the newest leading-edge distribution panels and circuit breakers, giving them the skills, understanding, and application of the current codes being rolled out by the National Electric Code,” said William Wells, BTC Electrician Instructor. “BTC’s labs now are able to feature side-by-side comparative set-ups including older panels and the new Siemens-donated panels, allowing students to study and train on both. This helps our students enter the workforce with skills needed by industry and is an enormous benefit.”

    Siemens’ donation and visit are part of the SIschool program, which gives students hands-on experience with advanced wiring skills and the opportunity to become familiar with the technologies used in today’s electrical industry. This donated power distribution equipment retails for approximately $10,000 and includes single-family, multi-family, and commercial building services and panel boards that provide vital improvements in operation and safety for the public and efficient installation for the electrical worker.

    “We’re thrilled to partner with Bellingham Technical College to provide hands-on training for the next-generation of electrical industry workers,” said David Quatela, Brand Strategy Manager at Siemens. “This program will help address the industry’s skills shortage by bringing the technology directly into the classroom, preparing these students to fill open positions and shape U.S. infrastructure for years to come.”

    Siemens’ combination circuit panels solve a vital issue that the National Electric Code (NEC, or NFPA 70, a regionally adoptable standard for the safe installation of electrical wiring and equipment in the United States) has long been working to resolve by combining both types of circuits: the GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter), which is designed to protect people from severe or fatal electric shocks, and AFCI (Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter), which protects against fires caused by arcing faults. Arcing faults often occur in damaged or deteriorated wires and cords. AFCI is an advanced circuit breaker that, as a way to reduce electrical fire threats, breaks the circuit when it detects a dangerous electric arc in the circuit that it protects.

    This donation allows BTC Electrician students to train on and familiarize themselves with the advanced equipment that they will see on the job when they start their careers as electricians.

  • Atlanta, GA

    Siemens is partnering with Sacramento’s Independent Training & Apprenticeship Program (I-TAP) and Independent Electric Supply (IES) to launch SIschool, a new training program to provide students with hands-on training in the field of low voltage electrical engineering. Siemens is providing local Sacramento electrical engineering students with residential electrical equipment that allows them to practice advanced wiring skills and become familiar with the technologies used in today’s electrical engineering field.

    Approximately 30 students will receive training on the SIschool equipment and recently participated in a Siemens and I-TAP workshop on the technology. This program expands Siemens existing workforce development efforts in the region which include a welding training program at its rail manufacturing hub in Sacramento, CA.

    “The donations provided by Siemens to I-TAP’s facility demonstrate the continued investment into the future of this industry. Our current and future students will receive great benefit to their careers by getting the opportunity to practice make up on Siemens panels and breakers,” said Carolyn Nutter, owner of I-TAP. “I-TAP looks forward to the continued relationship with Siemens and IES and providing more training opportunities to students.”

    Close to 20 low voltage technologies will be represented in a “training wall” that includes meter sockets, load centers, breakers, and surge products. Siemens is also supplying the schools with training curriculum, coordinating with head instructors and participating in annual seminars with students.

    “As an instructor, I hear many who stress the importance of education but it is few who step up to the plate to invest in the future generation. Siemens and IES have demonstrated their commitment to education by partnering with I-Tap in order to provide an elevated educational experience,” said Gerald Soria, instructor at I-TAP. “Through this partnership between manufacturer, distributor and instructors, I-TAP hopes to train knowledgeable electricians who are prepared to work with the latest technology.”

    “The electrical engineering landscape has changed dramatically even over the last 10 years, so we need to ensure that the workforce of tomorrow is prepared,” said Barry Powell, head of Siemens Low Voltage & Systems. “By providing the latest in engineering technology, students can have a true hands-on approach to learning that we hope will help develop the next generation of great American engineers.”

    The Sacramento program expands Siemens existing SIschool training initiative that spans ten schools in states across the U.S. including New Jersey, California, Maryland, Iowa, Missouri, Georgia, Texas and Minnesota with close to 200 students receiving the training over the next year.
