Harnessing today’s energy for tomorrow’s generation

As the focus increases to use and integrate renewable energy as a preferred energy source, the need for a qualified workforce is being sought by industry, communities, environmental groups, and federal and provincial governments.

Whether it be wind, solar, or geothermal, the Renewable Energies industry is still so young and in its early stages. Niagara College has done a fantastic job meeting the need for workers in this industry with the Renewable Energies Technician Program. But what makes the program so successful is the caring faculty behind it all. The Renewable Energies Technician program has led me to an exciting career in the Wind Industry, where I use the skills and knowledge learned in the program.
