LRCC Energy Programs Continue
The grant-funded Efficiency Training Program with LRCC, Plymouth Area Renewable Energy Initiative and the NH Division of Economic Development has been completed. We thank all who have participated in ETP programs, and some programs such as BPI and BOC will continue at a smaller scale. The need continues… If you are curious about a 3-page Getting to a Qualified Residential Retrofit NH CORE Workforce white paper I just produced, please give a holler.
I am happy to announce that I am continuing at LRCC in the Energy Services and Technology department. The award-winning 2-year EST degree program provides an excellent grounding for students and professionals in the energy field, with an outstanding job placement record. Look to LRCC for excellent courses across the energy field, from solar installation to lighting economics. This fall Renewable Energy Sources and Introduction to Residential Energy will be offered by Prof. Wes Golomb as online 3-credit courses starting in early Sept. Check out the complete Fall 2013 LRCC college course offerings.
