UAlberta launches courses to fill gaps in renewable energy sector

October 20, 2020

The University of Alberta’s Faculty of Extension is launching a new Renewable Energy Technologies Series beginning November 1, 2020. The stackable programs include Renewable Energy Essentials, Solar Energy Development and Design, and Wind Energy Development and Design. The online programs allow workers in the oil and gas sector to upskill in order to meet changing demands of employers and address skills shortages. “Renewable energy is a rapidly evolving field, and there’s an opportunity here to be the workforce of tomorrow, to position for the industries of tomorrow, where we know there are material investments and opportunities,” said Cameron Jones, an instructor leading the series.
