Richardville welcomes new power and technology training institute to southeastern Michigan
LANSING-State Sen. Randy Richardville today welcomed the Power Technology Institute, a division of the Michigan Institute of Aviation and Technology, to New Boston at its grand opening and official ribbon cutting ceremony.
“The Power Technology Institute will be a vital training center for the nation’s energy industry,” said Richardville, R-Monroe. “We are proud that the institute has selected Michigan as a location to train new workers in careers that will focus on advancements in technology and alternative energies.”
The theme for the event was “Training for Tomorrow’s Power…Today.” While speaking at the ceremony, Richardville highlighted Michigan’s new energy laws that will increase the use and production of renewable energy.
“Michigan must begin developing alternative energy sources that will help meet our growing demand for power,” Richardville said. “That’s why I worked so hard to pass the energy legislation, which promotes the importance of clean, renewable resources. The Power Technology Institute will be instrumental in helping train additional workers for the energy industry here in Michigan and across the nation.”
The institute will focus on programs in aviation maintenance, power technology and transportation dispatch.
