And So It Begins

If you are looking on how to break into the new green movement but are not sure on
how to start.  Well, the Mitchell Technical Institute is providing a training
course, it is located in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and it is offering a degree
in wind turbine technology.

They talked with utility providers and firms that are putting up the wind farms
and tried to determine what it is they need for a worker.  There probably are fewer
than two dozen such programs in the nation.

Starting next fall, students can choose between a one-year program that grants a
diploma to be a wind turbine technician and a two-year degree that qualifies them
for more advanced work.

If you wanted to get more into the electronics, the troubleshooting delivery,
and those types of things away from the pure mechanics of it, you would come back
for a second year. Along with several general education requirements that needed
to be completed, at the end of five semesters, an associated applied science degree
would be given.

For those construction companies who are installing the wind turbines, the one
year course may fit their needs. Students must complete a summer internship in
order to complete the curriculum requirements.

Should you be interested in teaching such a course, they are currently looking to
hire.
