College Courses

Many local colleges now offer training in repairs and maintenance for wind turbines. States with wind turbine plants also have college courses for wind turbine technicians. These will teach everything from the mechanics of understanding how the turbines work to meteorology. For instance Columbia Gorge are currently offering a one year certificate course or a two year degree directly focused on wind turbine energy.

Company Apprenticeships

With state governments focusing increasingly on the green energy industry, a large amount of money is now being invested into wind turbine technology. The wind turbine companies that are receiving these investments are keen to recruit apprentices to learn, train and work in the field. If you are looking for an apprenticeship to kick start your career, apply directly with the energy companies who are currently keen to recruit apprentices to train on the job.
