Cuyamaca College is providing a 120-hour introductory course free to eligible students through a training program co-sponsored by the San Diego Workforce Partnership.
The one-month course will be offered from May 7-June 4 at Cuyamaca College. Classes will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Seating is limited.
The Introduction to Green Building Careers is funded through the State Energy Sector Partnership, an offshoot of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, and will help displaced workers, the long-term unemployed, new workers, military veterans, and older youths gain the skills to compete for jobs in the expanding green economy.
Topics include basic construction principles, environmental training, energy retrofits and efficiency, water-efficient buildings and retrofits, solar, hot water and solar electric installation and design, work readiness and hands-on work experience.
A $300 stipend is provided to students who complete the program. The program goals are to prepare students to enroll in more specialized training needed to obtain jobs in construction, solar or other energy-efficient fields.
Those interested in this program must attend a mandatory orientation and complete an eligibility process. To register for the orientation, visit the Green Building Careers website or contact Camille Currier at 619-660-4574 or email@example.com
