The Madison College Wind Energy Technology Certificate is designed to provide students with the theoretical knowledge necessary for a career in energy management and renewable energy technology. Students acquire hands-on skills in troubleshooting, maintenance, installation, operation, and repair and replacement of related equipment. The certificate requires a minimum of 17 credits of coursework.
Certificate credits may be combined with additional coursework to enhance traditional diploma, degree, and transfer programs at Madison College. The credits may also be combined with additional training, job experience and/or professional examinations to qualify for certification by national renewable energy institutions.
Incumbent trade workers and technical professionals are encouraged to investigate how a Renewable Energy Certificate may related to their current work or business practices. Some classes are delivered in online and/or intensive short-course forms, and some classes may be offered during evenings, weekends, winter break, spring break and/or summer sessions.
