Crane Institute of America (CIA) has partnered with Seminole County Public Schools (SCPS) to participate in the ePathways initiative. ePathways is a program that enables high school students workplace learning experience, with participating companies providing internships for eligible students to work in a real adult environment.
Every student intern must work 120 hours total from January 22nd to May 15th to earn 1 high school credit. They’re placed in real workplaces and expected to work as adults would in the same environment, learning valuable social skills for their future careers on top of the experience provided by the job. These are paid positions. The interns are also given the option to continue working for their chosen company after completing their ePathways credit, potentially expanding into a career choice right out of high school. CIA’s intern, Bailey Cadden, is currently working in our accounting department. She assists with billing to customers, accounts receivable, accounts payable, and any other office administration work that she can assist with.
By working with SCPS, Crane Institute of America can introduce a new generation to the lifting and rigging industry.
