At PacifiCorp, our employees have the resources to flourish, both professionally and personally. Because we are committed to lifelong learning and continuous development, we have training centers, programs and activities that employees can use to keep their skills current, strengthen their knowledge and investigate rewarding growth opportunities.
- Training Centers
Our training centers in Wilsonville, Oregon — part of an alliance with Clackamas Community College and Portland General Electric — and in Sandy, Utah — a partnership with Salt Lake Community College — bring technical training and professional development courses to utility employees and to the community. Both facilities feature dedicated classroom and lab space and pole yards for hands-on practice.
PacifiCorp employees are encouraged to take advantage of specialized courses, such as:
- Advanced technical training

- Apprenticeship training
- Management Development
For employees interested in managerial positions, our management development programs provide excellent supporting tools, including:
- Customized leadership programs and conferences

- Employee Development
Employees can take classes, participate as volunteers in company service projects and take advantage of company development opportunities:
- Employee orientation for new team members to learn about our company's history, vision and values, and meet colleagues
- Union apprenticeship training in electrical trades: lineman, substation wireman, meterman, estimator and hydro plant operator
- Personal development plans with tailored strategies to help employees achieve career goals
- Employee Learning
PacifiCorp's e-learning program allows employees to maintain or expand their skills and to succeed in a rapidly changing business world. Our interactive online courses, ranging from business communications and languages to computer programming, use a hands-on approach in teaching skills that can be translated directly into the workplace. Computer-based formats provide flexible learning, allowing employees to study at their own pace and on their own schedule.
