PROGRAM SUMMARY

AAS Sustainable/Renewable Energy Brochure (66 hours)

This unique two-year program concentrates on solar photovoltaic (PV) and small wind technology. Because this program is online, students can learn and work from anywhere with internet access.

Participation in Saturday “boot camps” is recommended to gain hands-on training. Boot camps are offered every eight weeks in the fall and spring semesters.
