FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI –
Lakeshore Technical College will offer a two-day wind turbine safety seminar in October and again in November. Students who successfully complete a seminar receive certification valid for two years.
LTC's wind turbine SAFER program provides work-at-height professionals with the knowledge and skills to work SAFER (Safe Access, Fall protection, Evacuation, and Rescue).
The seminar will be offered Oct. 4-5 (refer to class No. 67190) and again Nov. 1-2 (refer to class No. 60023), from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at LTC's campus in Cleveland.

Students will perform a variety of hands-on exercises, from inspecting equipment to conducting rescue scenarios using LTC's High Angle Rescue Training Tower and Outdoor Wind Lab. The facilities provide the most realistic training environment available outside a working wind farm.
Students must be medically and physically fit with a desire to work at heights.
