21st-Century Workforce Training
Siemens is partnering with Sacramento’s Independent Training & Apprenticeship Program (I-TAP) and Independent Electric Supply (IES) to launch SIschool, a program to provide students with hands-on training of low voltage electrical engineering. Local Sacramento engineering students are equipped with electrical equipment that allows them to practice advanced wiring skills and learn today’s electrical engineering technology.
Siemens Mobility’s footprint has grown to support the increasing U.S. passenger rail market. In North America, Siemens Mobility provides rail vehicles, locomotives, components and systems to more than 30 agencies in cities such as Washington DC, New York, Seattle, Denver, Salt Lake City, Minneapolis, Houston, Portland, San Diego, St. Louis and Atlanta.
When the White House’s Joining Forces initiative began in 2011, Siemens pledged to hire at least 300 veterans. In 2016, Siemens reported that it had exceeded that initial commitment by more than six times and had hired its 2,000th U.S. veteran, Building Technologies employee Richard McCulley, who is based in Sacramento. Joining Forces calls on the private sector to “rally around service members, veterans, and their families and support them through wellness, education, and employment opportunities.”
