The Renewable/Alternative Energy Technologies program, which was founded in the Summer of 2012, provides a zero-based tuition technical education to individuals who meet the prerequisites. The program provides individuals with the technical training for the renewable and alternative energy field.
The technology-driven curriculum delivered in modules will focus on the mechanics of green energy, rather than the philosophical study of the environment. Students successfully completing the program will receive 4-credits towards an associate’s degree and a certificate of completion from the college.
Topics covered include:
The Renewable Energy Program is currently accepting applications based upon rolling admissions for our next day cohort.
Classes will be held on Monday and Wednesday from 9:30 AM to 2:30 PM
This innovative program will be accepting individuals based upon the rolling admission process. Each cohort of 16 students will be trained using technical simulators that provide realistic experiences in installation and troubleshooting of renewable and alternative energy systems.
Housed at the CCAC–West Hills Center, the 225-hour curriculum will be taught two to three days per week. The cohort is designed to meet the individual needs of the group, and follow the trends in the current job market.
Each cohort will complete an orientation to the Renewable/Alternative Energy Technologies program. The orientation will review the expectations of each individual in a accordance with CCAC policies including: attendance, participation, and evaluating procedures.
Cohorts are scheduled according to student interest and will be offered during the day and evening throughout the duration of the grant.
There is no cost or fees for students selected into the cohort; however, each student must complete an interview and assessment to qualify for the program. Remediation will be provided to students testing above a 70% competency level.
Who Might Benefit from the Program?
The program will be staffed by experts in the field of renewable/alternative energy.
