And the EPCE program fit the bill.Benedict studied evenings and weekends from her computer to complete the program, and earned her A.A.S. degree this spring.While she was enrolled, Benedict applied for a new position at an Xcel coal-fired power plant, and found that her courses made a difference."I think the courses enabled me to handle the interview better - I knew what I was talking about."As a result, Benedict has started a new job as Plant Production Supervisor, with primary responsibility for managing the daily activities of approximately 15 maintenance employees.She recommends the program to her co-workers and offers this advice for success: "This is all about time management.You're the driver in this, and you have to meet deadlines."Since Heidi's been going to school since she graduated high school, she plans on taking a rest from studying for a while and concentrating on mastering her new job.
