PSEG is proud to announce PSEG Ready2Work, a new half-million-dollar private investment in the residents of the city of Bridgeport. This apprenticeship readiness training program will consist of five classes over a 14-month period to prepare Bridgeport residents, including minorities, women and veterans, for potential apprenticeships in the various building trades. PSEG has designed this program in accordance with commitments made in a Community Environmental Benefit Agreement (CEBA). The program will be administered by The WorkPlace, with comprehensive training supplied by Building Pathways Connecticut.
