Wind Turbine Maintenance Technician

While harnessing the wind to power machinery and transportation is nothing new, the interest in developing this and other renewable technologies to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels has never been more fervent. The wind industry’s impact is not limited to energy production, however. As the construction and ongoing maintenance of turbines and wind farms increases, so do the employment possibilities and the need for educated and well-trained technicians. This program is the first in a series of curriculum supporting a three-year training program based upon the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Core Skill Set for Wind Turbine Service Technicians, as well as the Department of Labor’s apprenticeship standards for wind turbine technicians. Topics covered in this curriculum include Introduction to Wind Energy, Wind Turbine Safety, and Climbing Wind Towers.

This particular craft requires some additional instructor requirements.
