MidAmerican Energy, DMACC and Index AR Solutions Continue to Collaborate on Training Program

March 16, 2023
A utility, community college and technology vendor are coming together to train the next generation of lineworkers through a digital training curriculum.

In August 2022, 15 students at Des Moines Area Community College (DMACC) began an Electric Utility course that would be taught using next-generation digital learning materials from Index.

Each student received a tablet loaded with a few modifications. They were they trained using the Index AR Solutions Line Mechanic Apprenticeship training program used by MidAmerican Energy to train their employees. For the first time, community college students would be learning with the same training material they would encounter if in the future they joined MidAmerican.
