Wind Energy Technology

In the Wind Energy Technology Program, you'll learn to operate and maintain the systems that make a wind turbine function whether it's an electrical, pneumatic, communications, computer, control or hydraulic system. Safety is a critical part of the wind energy industry and upon completion of the program you'll be able to practice those principles in industry.

You'll also learn all about SCADA (that stands for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition). It's the utility industry standard computerized system that controls the wind tower network. You'll also find that knowledge of all the systems you'll learn in the Wind Energy Technology Program is important not only to wind energy but also to many other types of companies in the utility industry.

In this program, students will learn how to:

  • Demonstrate proficient skills in maintaining and repairing electrical systems of wind turbines
  • Exhibit competency in maintaining and repairing mechanical systems of wind turbines
  • Implement a safe working environment in response to hazards associated with wind turbines
  • Work with supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and data communications related to wind turbines

Veterans and Service Members may bypass the Wind Safety 1302 and Technical Calculations 1303 courses by being certified in the OSHA 10, CPR, Forklift, Suspension/Trauma, and test out the Technical Calculations course.  Veterans taking advantage of the streamline may earn up to 6 credit hours.   Saving the student up to 112 contact hours.
