DETROIT, July 22, 2013

DETROIT, July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DTE Energy (NYSE: DTE)is starting a
new Boot Camp to train veterans and others to become instrument and control
technicians in the company's fleet of power plants.

The Fossil Generation Boot Camp will begin in late August through Schoolcraft
Community College in Livonia. There are 15 training slots available and at
least 10 employment opportunities at the end of training.

The Michigan National Guard will help identify potential students based on
their skills, experience and aptitude for the job. While there is no
guarantee of employment, Boot Camp students who successfully complete the
training are expected to be well-qualified and ready to start careers in the
energy industry upon graduation.

The initial four week-training will involve a distance learning approach
through a home computer. If a home computer isn't available, there will be two
locations in Livonia where they will be made available. The second part of the
training, which will conclude in November, will be at MIAT College of
Technology in Canton Township.

Those interested should have graduated high school or have a GED, completed
two years of at least high school algebra and physics, and have at least 4 ½
years of equivalent instrument and control experience, including two years of
process controls system experience.
