Graduates of the Wind Energy Technician Program will be prepared to enter the wind industry with wind farm developers and owners, wind turbine manufacturing and warranty service, or various specialty support industries. This is a fast growing and exciting industry, with new developments and entrepreneurial potential for those who have the demanding skills required for this new energy field.
With a few years of field experience, a wind technician may become a specialist in a maintenance program, an electronic troubleshooting specialist, a Safety Officer, become a Site Manager, or a Field Engineer. Some of these options may require further education, but a wind technician will have a strong foundation in field experience on which to build a wind energy career.
The skills learned in the program are transferable to many other industrial career paths involving servicing, maintaining, or repairing complex electro-mechanical equipment.
