Ten Years of Training 

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. Thank you for 

We’re extremely grateful to all those who made the Training Center what it is today: a LEED Gold facility that is certified by  the Building Performance Institute (BPI), has program accreditation from the Interstate Renewable Energy Council (IREC), and is an accredited Lead Training Center for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

In the past 10 years, ECA has trained over 5,400 men and women, whose diversity reflects the region we serve, including veterans and returning citizens, for clean energy credentials including: BPI Building Analyst, BPI Whole House Air Sealing and Insulation, Solar Installer, Commercial HVAC technician, and EPA RRP Certified Contractor.


Jacob, a 2019 ECA grad who now works at Johnson Controls Inc. stated: “It was an amazing experience. All the people I worked with were nice, and they really explained everything in a way I could understand, so I could get a good paying job. All the teachers knew what they were talking about to help me understand what I was learning.” 


Join us in building the green economy by making a tax-deductible contribution to ECA today. You’ll be investing in the future employability of youthful job seekers and aiding those looking to retool their skills for clean energy jobs.
