Career Education in Renewable Energy Technologies

Renewable Energy
Solar Institute

The academies are designed to provide high school teachers and two-year college instructors with hands-on experience and instructional training necessary to incorporate renewable energy technology into their own classrooms. The academies are taught by veteran industry experts, and are based on existing programs certified by national training/accrediting bodies such as the National Alternative Fuel Training Consortium and the Institute for Sustainable Power Quality. Two academies will be offered each summer in a staggered pattern to meet the scheduling needs of teachers. Funding through the National Science Foundation allows CERET to provide teachers with stipends to offset the costs of tuition, travel, room and board for the class.
