Renewable Energy Training Program
Iron & Earth is an initiative led by oil sands workers looking to expand the skills and work scope of the energy trades to include more renewables.
Our training programs prepare trainees for the boom in solar energy jobs and allow oil, gas and coal workers to both transition to the solar energy sector and take their new skills and knowledge back to their job sites to do three important things: minimize the impact of carbon based energy industries, advocate for a more sustainable future, and speak knowledgeably about the applications and opportunities offered by solar technologies. Priority will be given to out of work or underemployed electricians in the oil, gas and coal industries.
The best part? They will do this while building clean tech infrastructure on schools in or near their community.
