CBS4 recently covered Redstone College’s wind energy degree program– a 15 month wind career-focused learning experience with emphasis on safety training, electronics and hours of hands-on training in the turbine simulator Redstone installed just for this program.
Wind energy companies like Vestas are seeing new contracts and a growing need for service technicians. The wind energy training“exceeds industry standards” for training technicians, according to a press release from Redstone.
Nearly 100 students are currently enrolled in this program, as it is a great educational investment for anyone looking to get into the growing wind energy field. Salaries for technicians can range from $35,000 to $50,000 a year.
