knight green jobs training center
In March 2010, ECA opened the Knight Green Jobs Training Center to prepare unemployed/underemployed young people, returning citizens, veterans, and older workers looking to re-tool their skills to enter the growing clean energy workforce. ECA offers industry-driven training that includes classroom theory, hands-on training, and field experience. We equip our graduates with portable and stackable credentials recognized nationwide, and are committed to diversifying the building and energy trades. Our Energy Auditor and Solar PV Installer programs are accredited by the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), and in 2013 ECA's Training Center was recognized as IREC's 3i Clean Energy Training Program of the Year.
The Knight Green Jobs Training Center (KGJTC) is helping to meet the workforce needs of weatherization and retrofit installers, as well as energy efficiency professionals. The KGJTC creates a learning environment that is intellectually and environmentally full of life. KGJTC is an employment readiness training center that prepares trainees for careers in energy conservation. Obtaining employment for its trainees is the KGJTC’s overall goal. Every trainee is expected to act in a professional, responsible, and courteous manner to all staff at the KGJTC, as if they were on the job.
The KGJTC prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. Indeed, diversifying the building trades workforce and opening doors is a core objective for the KGJTC. Applicants or trainees who experience any difficulty should go here.
