Renewable Energy Education

While the world’s economy is slowly recovering and improving, we don’t have to tell you that the green collar economy is booming. Green job training programs are sprouting up across the country and are educating a new, unique type of dedicated work force.

If you’re interesting in switching careers, consider looking into a certificate program or an associate in applied science (AAS) degree in alternative energy technology. These certificates and degree programs will prepare you for the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners Entry Level Exam and will set your new career in motion.

If you’re just interested in learning more about the trade and technology, many community colleges and job training facilities offer seminars, individual courses and weekend workshops as well.

Below is an overview of some of the training programs around the United States. For a more thorough list, visit the Renewable Energy Training Catalog published by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council.
