SOWELA, Cheniere start apprenticeship program

Officials from SOWELA Technical Community College announced on Thursday, Nov. 29, a $250,000 donation from Houston-based Cheniere Energy and the launch of a partnership in the form of an apprenticeship program. The donation will be used to purchase a skid for SOWELA’s new Center for Industrial and Process Technology.

With the new apprenticeship program launching in January 2019, eligible students will take what they have learned in SOWELA’s classrooms and apply it to their jobs at Cheniere Energy’s Sabine Pass Terminal. Students accepted into the apprenticeship program will be involved in the day-to-day processing and instrumentation work at the facility. The apprenticeship will accept 16 students for Process Technology and six students for Instrumentation Technology.

Cheniere’s donation to SOWELA is part of its ongoing commitment to supporting STEM initiatives. In 2017, Cheniere invested $3.5 million dollars toward programs supporting STEM initiatives, disaster relief and recovery efforts, military service care, environmental stewardship, and community health and wellness.
