The Sustainable Energy Technician program prepares graduates to work in both residential and light commercial occupational settings. By completion of the program, students will have gained experience and knowledge enabling them to perform site assessments with the ability to integrate renewable electrical and thermal systems with current existing energy sources. The technician will have an understanding of photovoltaic and wind turbine generating systems as well as solar thermal, geothermal and biomass systems making it possible for graduates to work in sales, marketing or installation and maintenance of these technologies. Students will also graduate with a working knowledge of 'green' building concepts and energy efficient design principles allowing for more efficiency and sustainable systems.
Graduates from this program have a range of skills enabling them to work in a variety of occupational settings including energy consulting firms, heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration industries or building owners.
