City of Madison launches new program to grow workforce

Applications are now being accepted for the city of Madison Engineering Division’s newest infrastructure program, Madison Infrastructure Training – Engineering Program, also known as the MI-TE Program.

The MI-TE Program is a paid, six-month-long program, where trainees learn in the classroom and hands-on field training in concrete flatwork, asphalt patching, and utility casting adjustments.

The program is designed to prepare trainees for a career in public works with the city of Madison. Trainees will learn how the city’s infrastructure is built and maintained, about related equipment operation, and construction safety.

Once trainees complete the program, they’ll be considered for permanent entry-level positions in the Engineering, Parks, and Streets divisions.
