Tuesday, July 11, 2023 to Thursday, May 16, 2024
Tuesday: 6:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.
Thursday: 6:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m.

Work at Hennepin Energy Recovery Center, as an Operator Apprentice, while taking classes with PPL and Minneapolis College. During the program you will be prepared to drive heavy machinery, receive 3+ certifications and gain on the job experience. The hours would be part time but you would be paid for full time hours. The type of work done at the HERC site is physical labor, loud and stinky as you are working with the recycling and waste of the county and you will get to see what this environment is like with on site tours and shadowing before graduation. You will also be PAID 40 hours a week at a rate of around $27 per hour.

How to Participate

The first step for all PPL training programs is to attend a virtual information session which we hold every Monday at 10am on Zoom. If you cannot make this day or time we can also send you a recording. Request an invite by visiting our website: https://www.ppl-inc.org/career-training-info-session-signup

You can also email us at ccintake@ppl-inc.org to directly ask questions or request to get started on the process.

Outcomes

You will be directly connected to Hennepin County and Great River Energy (GRE) for direct hiring opportunities after graduation. You will also earn customer service and sales, Mental Health and First Aid, and OSHA 30 certifications as well benefit from two paid attempts at your boilers license exam. You will practice operating large machinery at extreme sandbox. 

Program Costs

Free - Based on Household Income up to 200% to the poverty-line.

You are able to pre-screen yourself by referencing the Federal Poverty Guidelines here: https://www.projusticemn.org/fedpovertyguidelines/ or a PPL Intake Team member can talk through your household circumstance after attending an Information Session.
