Posted by wlpo on March 26, 2010

Wind towers are popping across the country-side and soon you’ll be able to learn more about the powerful turbines through a certificate program at Illinois Valley Community College.  A Basic Renewable Wind Energy Technician certificate was approved by the college’s board of trustees Thursday night.

The certificate is for people wanting to become a wind farm technician. 

Sue Isermann is the Associate Vice President for Career and Technical Education at IVCC.  She says demand for technicians is strong. And entry-level wages are $24 to $25 an hour.
