The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that employment of wind turbine service technicians is projected to grow 96 percent from 2016 to 2026, much faster than the average for all occupations. Because wind electricity generation is expected to grow rapidly over the coming decade, additional technicians will be needed to install and maintain new turbines. Job prospects are expected to be excellent.

Because CCC offers the Small Wind Technology Certificate of Completion online, students have the flexibility to learn and work from home. 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.
