Bucks County Community College Introduces Green Jobs Academy

by Green Jobs Ready on April 6, 2011

According to recent journalistic news coverage by writer Kara Seymour for AOL’s Patch.com, the east coast—Pennsylvania in particular—has added another institution to its list dedicated to educating and informing the next generation of workers for green industries and renewable energy professions.

Bucks County Community College, according to Seymour, located in Pennsylvania, has recently begun offering a Green Jobs Academy. Described by the college’s assistant vice president of continuing education and workforce development Chris Gillespie as “one of the only institutions of its kind in the region,” Seymour cites the Green Jobs Academy, located specifically in Bristol, as offering a variety of viable green jobs training programs pertinent to today’s competitive but blossoming alternative and clean energy job markets.

Among the jobs that the Green Jobs Academy will offer its student training for include occupations that necessitate students’ mastery of skills such as solar thermal technologies, geothermal energy, energy efficiency, and a wide variety of other possible roles within various alternative energy companies.

Built with facilities describes as “state-of-the-art” by Seymour, Bucks County Community College’s Green Jobs Academy began formal operations last year with the aid of a federal grant amounting to approximately $200,000. The academy also works in conjunction with Gamesa, a local wind turbine manufacturing company, to provide training for future employees.
