Eastern Wyoming College awarded grant

February 10, 2010
The Eastern Wyoming College Workforce Development and Construction Technology programs have been awarded a $79,275 Workforce Development Council and Department of Workforce Services Alternative and Renewable Energy Training grant.
These monies will bring weatherization, small wind turbine technology, solar thermal, and photovoltaic training to employees and energy consumers. The project will provide training options for skills to develop and install green energy conservation technology components in residences, businesses, on farms and ranches and in municipalities. Courses, which will range from two to six weeks in duration, will result in industry recognized certificates. Class work will provide a background in energy conservation principles as applied in green building and weatherization methods, as well as tools to reach consumers.
Those completing the diverse coursework will be valuable employees for businesses that service small wind turbines and solar energy, provide weatherization services, and for municipalities. Trainees will be able to utilize their skills to, ultimately, result in savings on energy bills for residents and businesses, and to conserve energy resources. Municipal employees will learn how to harness wind and solar energy to enable their towns to conserve energy.
Curricula will be developed by EWC instructors and will include components set forth by the National Home Builders Association, Building Performance Institute (BPI), and ENERGY STAR’s RESNET, particularly as they relate to air loss and ventilation control. The EWC Workforce Development office will set up sites and training schedules across the region, and develop classes as requested by businesses, municipalities and other entities. The lab is expected to begin serving the area this year.
