The Alternative Energy Technology (AET) Program prepares students to enter the industrial/commercial/residential setting in the growing areas of renewable energy, i.e. solar, wind, and geothermal technologies.
Within the Alternative Energy Technology program, students can earn progressive levels of certificates toward employment and/or the degree. The methods of instruction include hands-on training as well as classroom instruction. Real world lab environment will include experiments with solar, wind, and geothermal equipment, use of meters, measurements and calculations of values. This program of study embraces the body of knowledge found in national certifications for renewable energy professionals.
This project was funded in part, by a grant awarded under the President’s Community-Based Job Training Grants, as implemented by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment & Training Administration.
