Wind Energy Technology

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

There are very few institutions in the country that provide training for entry-level workers for wind-based electric power plants. Wind-based electric plants (farms) are operated by small groups of highly trained individuals. This online program is designed for people who seek entry level jobs in a wind-based electric power generation facilities. Currently, there are thousands of wind-based electric generators operating in the United States.

Due to environmental reasons as well as a desire to limit reliance on foreign oil, it is expected that wind-based energy is going to be developed at a rapid pace over the next decade. It should also be noted that during the last decade, wind-based energy has dramatically improved its economical competitive position. Some believe that his type of energy is already competitive enough to replace large segments of conventional energy sources. Wide expansion of this energy sector in the United States has already begun.

Wind Energy Professional

Course Format: Online/Virtual Classroom/Webinar  V

The availability of clean, renewable power is without question going to be the defining challenge and goal of the 21st century, and wind will lead the way. Wind power can realistically not only replace the lion’s share of oil, coal, and natural gas fired electrical plants in the U.S., but also can add enough extra power capacity to allow for most of the cars in the nation to run on electricity.

This Wind Energy Professional course is designed specifically with technicians in mind! Our course covers all aspects of installing and troubleshooting wind turbines, giving technicians the knowledge they need to handle even complex maintenance tasks. This course explains how wind turbine blades harvest wind energy, and how generators convert shaft turning energy into electricity. It shows how electrical and hydraulic systems control the speed of wind turbine blades, energizing blade pitch and yaw position controls. Mechanical subjects such as gears, transmissions and gear...
