As part of a $4.8M grant from the Department of Labor, the University of Nebraska has developed a series of training curricula to promote workforce development in Nebraska’s renewable energy and energy efficiency industries. These trainings are presented in a contextualized (e.g. ‘hands-on’), short-course format ideally suited for K-12, trade apprenticeship and related vocational programs. The goal of this curriculum is to provide the foundation for sustained employment and career advancement in Nebraska’s ‘green collar’ workforce.
