Currently, job training programs that were developed as a result of the passage of the Future Energy Jobs Act (P.A. 99-0906) are being managed by Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) until June 30, 2022.
At that time, the management of these programs will change hands from ComEd to the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO). These programs are will also be updated in size and scope. This change was mandated by the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act (P.A. 102-0662), which was signed into law on September 15, 2021.
As this transition is currently in process and DCEO is actively standing up the job training programs, there will be a gap in availability of these programs from July 1, 2022 until the programs are available for new applicants via DCEO. The Program Administrator will update this page once new information on job training programs becomes available.
Past graduates of job training programs made available by the Future Energy Jobs Act (P.A. 99-0906) are still eligible for EEC certification during this transition period. These programs and their offerors are listed below. Please note that some offerors provide multiple trainings and only the specific training programs listed below are eligible for EEC certification.
