Green Jobs Consortium
In order to prepare Oklahomans for a green economy, OSU-Oklahoma City is participating in the Green Occupational Skills Training Grant funded by the Oklahoma Department of Commerce. By taking part, OSU-OKC is educating the state’s workforce to better allow Oklahoma to face the changing energy efficiency economy.
Training will be in the areas of Geothermal Heating & Cooling Systems and Smart Metering Technology.
Geothermal Heating & Cooling training will focus on design, installation, repair and sales of geothermal technology using hands-on simulation and the latest course material offered by the International Ground Source Heat Pump Association (IGSHPA). This training will help individuals gain needed skills in the growing market.
Smart Metering Technology training will enhance skills for individuals already in the electrical power distribution industry. The training will focus on the installation, development and use of smart meters and their connection to the grid, and will help individuals gain needed skills to advance their career.
The training provided through this opportunity will allow for hands-on understanding and expenses with the latest systems found in both evolving industries.
