The Skillset for Success

Our program offers a comprehensive curriculum that goes beyond mere technical training.

During this process, they become proficient in a variety of essential platforms and tools, such as: 

  • Microsoft Office 365

But technical skills are just the tip of the iceberg. The program also focuses on essential soft skills like professional communication, remote collaboration, critical thinking, and self-management. Our engineers learn to document their work meticulously and take insightful notes, setting them apart in any professional environment. 

A Typical Day: Real Tasks, Real Learning 

Our training approach is immersive and practical. After an initial period of video tutorials, interactive worksheets, and hands-on exercises, our junior engineers are ready to tackle real-world tasks. Elisha Wheeler provides expert mentorship to the participants, guiding them through various activities such as designing telecommunication circuits and implementing fiber optic ticketing systems. Occasionally, the participants also work on side projects that allow them to apply their existing skills in areas such as computer programming.  

Elisha emphasizes the importance of quality over quantity, stating, "I'm satisfied with one well-executed task per day, as long as it's accurate." 

Cultivating Tomorrow's Leaders 

What sets our Junior Engineering Program apart is its focus on leadership development. Under Elisha and program creator Darrell Sanders’ guidance, participants don't just become skilled technicians; they evolve into future industry leaders. They gain experience in peer mentoring, assume daily responsibilities, and even participate in interviews, all of which contribute to their professional growth.
