In partnership with several Canadian and international energy companies, Lethbridge College will use the funds to develop long-term, durable training programs, educational products and stakeholder coalitions.
The expected results of this project include retention of rural residents through access to high-quality employment, increased income diversification, economic sustainability and development of educational programming that can be adopted by other regional industries across Alberta.
Lethbridge College's wind turbine technician program is a combination of theory and hands-on lab practice on training turbines. This combination provides students with comprehensive knowledge and skills that make them employable around the world.
