Hello Managers,

The Tennessee Association of Utility Districts (TAUD) is excited to announce that we are completing a grant proposal to The Delta Regional Authority. We are asking for funds to help pay the hourly wages for a water or wastewater facility to hire a new employee or to enhance the training of an incumbent employee who is already employed. The TAUD Apprenticeship Program is the program that is applying for the grant. The scope of the grant is to provide half of the hourly wages for the new or existing employee. The employee would agree to participate in our two-year apprenticeship program. They would continue to work for your facility while completing TAUD technical training. At the end of this program the employee would be ready to test for operator certification and the facility would gain a more trained, operator-certified employee. This would be a win for both parties involved. This opportunity is available to four (4) facilities in the West Region of Tennessee. TAUD is committed to addressing the need for more certified operators in our state and this potential opportunity is a great way to begin that effort. If you are interested please contact me, Kevin Byrd, Workforce Development Coordinator for more specific information. Please contact me asap to be the first considered. Thank you for your time and consideration.
