Fairbanks Morse Education Grant for Veterans

Fairbanks Morse Education Grant For Veterans

The objective of the EGSA Fairbanks Morse Education Grant for Veterans program is to support our Nation’s armed services veterans as they return from service, offer an educational opportunity, a technician certification test and at the same time the opportunity to become engaged with the On-Site Power Generation industry and our organization. 

The EGSA Fairbanks Morse Education Grant for Veterans presents the following opportunities for US and Canadian military veterans:

  1. Attend a Rowley Basic School of On-Site Power Generation and take the Apprentice Level EGSA Technician Certification test.
  2. Attend a Rowley Advanced School of On-Site Power Generation and take the Journeyman Level EGSA Technician Certification test. (Technicians must have a minimum of 3 years of field experience before they can take the Journeyman test).
  3. Or, just attend a Rowley School or just take a Technician Certification test

The grant pays for the transportation, registration and hotel accommodations for the schools and for the appropriate study guide, a copy of the 700 page reference book, On-Site Power Generation: A Comprehensive Guide to On-Site Power and the cost of the test. (A small charge to cover the proctor’s fee may be payable on site by the technician).

This comprehensive grant provides military veteran technicians with the chance to increase their knowledge of on-site power generating systems – and a certificate to prove their level of knowledge to their present or future employers.
