In a statement issued by Mainstream Energy Solutions, it explained that forty-six of the trainees had National Diploma- ND in Electrical Engineering while four had National Certificate of Education in Electrical Technology.

To prepare the beneficiaries with work experiences, the release noted that thirty of them were posted to various business units of Yola Electricity Distribution Company.
