The fact that renewable energy sources must be brought into the post-secondary training system as quickly as possible is undisputed. The most essential ingredient is a trained workforce that can perform the tasks necessary to install, commission, repair, and maintain the particular equipment associated with the technology involved.

The program appeals to learners who enjoy change and adapting to new technology and want to seize the opportunity to take positive action to ensure an improved future environment. This program emphasizes hands-on, practical training, using equipment typically encountered in the renewable energy industry.
