FAQs about ETC Talent Development
The two-year program at ETC is a career and professional development initiative targeted at providing training and employment to Graduates who have completed NYSC. Applicants go through a series of our courses and assessments and upon successful completion, they are offered a contract, at the end of the MATRIX Phase, placed as full-time employees at solar companies and provided continuous professional development for 2 years.
There are three phases of the program. The first phase is the GENESIS Program, where you will learn the basics of solar engineering. The second phase is the MATRIX program where you will take on intensive online and physical training in addition to a 6-weeks apprenticeship with a solar company. The third phase is the ALPHA program where you will be placed as a full-time employee with a solar company and also provided adequate career support and professional development for 2 years.
ETC's programs are designed for graduates under the age of 30. However, we are currently designing programs for SMEs and professionals looking to transition into the energy sector in Nigeria.
Yes, you learn and earn! After the Matrix apprenticeship, ETC will support you in securing a job at a solar company as a full-time or project-based employee. You will earn a monthly income including other benefits.
