The training programme, which will include personnel from the Anguilla Electricity Company Limited (ANGLEC), is to ensure a highly skilled, certified, and dedicated team of linesman professionals. It is a part of CARILEC’S overarching efforts to promote sustainability and capacity building in the electricity industry.

In his remarks at the official signing ceremony for the MoU, CARILEC Executive Director Mr Thomas Hodge said that CARILEC is “focused on improving or facilitating world class electricity services for the people of the region, and we work with utilities anyway we can to support them in this.”

Chief Executive Officer of ANGLEC Mr David Gumbs, remarked: “This is a programme that is very critical for us in trying to develop our team and making sure our team receives the appropriate certifications for two reasons: One (1) the benefit that brings to the company; and Two (2) the development of our people.”
