Take hold of your future
The wind energy industry is the fastest growing segment of renewable energy production. The U.S. and Canadian wind industry is experiencing annual growth of 25%. Employers seek skilled technicians for operation and maintenance activities in wind farms. There is also a demand for advanced technicians with U.S. and international wind turbine manufacturers; these include: installation technicians, quality control technicians, and warranty and commissioning technicians. Operation and maintenance positions generally remain with a given wind farm location; other technicians travel extensively with the construction of new wind farms and repair/retrofitting of wind turbines around the world.
