The CCAC is hosting the next run of a renewable energies training course this fall, which covers a bunch of technologies and some of the technical training to install them:
This program provides a free technical education to individuals who meet the prerequisites. The prerequisites are an interview and assessment to qualify for the program. We use the TABE test, which test basic adult education in math and reading at about the 9th/10th grade levels. Remediation will be provided to students testing above a 70% competency level. A review of the skill set you will be evaluated on is available at http://www.testprepreview.com/tabe_practice.htm. Also, following the test there will be a brief interview. We recommend setting aside three hours to complete the test and interview.
Tier I of the technology driven curriculum will focus on the mechanics of green energy rather than the philosophical study of the environment. Tier II will provide students with the opportunity to specialize in one or more specific area of interest: hours/weeks will vary dependent upon category of choice.
Only 16 individuals participate in a course at a time, so classes are determined based upon the schedules of the program participants. Housed at the CCAC–West Hills Center, the 150-hour curriculum will be taught two to three days per week over a ten-week period. The next cohort of students will begin in the Fall.
See this flyer for more information. If you are interested, contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a testing date or for more information.
