Westar Partnership Signing

WESTAR-FHTC Partnership

Reps from WESTAR and FHTC participate in Partnership Signing

Westar Energy and Flint Hills Technical College are partnering to offer a Westar Pre-Apprentice Program which will integrate Westar and FHTC online training needs. Through the program, which will go live in
January, 2011, FHTC will develop and offer an online certificate program to provide individual pre-qualification training for Westar Energy. The program is open to trainees for Westar and the trainees that pass the program will be eligible to continue with Westar in further power plant professional
training.

“The program is a perfect match for FHTC because all of the subjects are already taught and incorporated as part of our current power plant technology online program, which specifically serves the power plant industry in our region,” said Steve Harmon, Business & Industry Center Director.

The 7 or 9 module program (based on trainee career track) will replicate the traditional textbook and lecture based program at WESTAR.  This material is currently included as well in the FHTC power plant technology program.  Courses will use Westar provided content with FHTC training management.  All instruction will take place online and be instructor facilitated and managed. Each module will require completion of the necessary training module to be followed by a test.  All participants must pass the required seven module tests  to receive a training certificate.

On Wednesday, May 26th, Westar signed a letter of agreement for the partnership with Flint Hills Technical College.
