TERRELL, TEXAS — In an effort to respond to continued business growth and to meet ongoing customer requirements, UNIFIED POWER has executed a plan to hire transitioning U.S. military members and veterans for their TAG program.
The TAG, or Training for Advancement & Growth, program provides trainees with extensive training at Unified Power’s state-of-the-art facility in Terrell, Texas. The first of the three-part training and development program jumpstarted Monday, June 18, 2018. The initial four-week intensive course focuses primarily on:
- DC fundamentals and theory
- Basic preventative maintenance (PM) practices
- Troubleshooting and repair
- Single-phase UPS (Uninterrupted Power Supply)
- Practical application exercises, both in our training facility and onsite at approved customer sites
- Observation and assistance with DC and UPS single-phase PMs
“We at Unified are proud of our wholly-organic Training & Development Program that focuses exclusively on the recruitment, training and ongoing development of talented industry professionals for a meaningful, fulfilling, and exciting career,” said Jennifer Ketcham, Vice President of Human Resources at Unified Power.
Since May, the company has succeeded in hiring six transitioning U.S military member and veteran recruits who served in electrical/electronics/avionics roles. This has helped the company to fill various positions throughout the United States, including: Spokane, WA; Cincinnati, OH; Birmingham, AL; Columbia, SC; Buffalo, NY; and Atlanta, GA.
“Hiring military applicants has been great for our customers and our business. These young men and women come to our company armed with outstanding technical skills, positive attitudes, and a real commitment to excellence,” said Justin McClung, Vice President of National Operations at Unified Power. “We’ve had great success with our military recruits, and we see this as a tremendous win-win opportunity.”
