Wind Turbine Technician Training
Are you looking for lasting job security and good pay in an expanding industry? Have you been searching for a career in engineering, electronics or construction?
Begin a fulfilling and good career as a Wind Turbine Technician at the Northwest Renewable Energy Institute, the leading trade school in the Pacific Northwest for renewable energy jobs. This exciting path to a career in wind power takes you out of a cubicle and 300 feet into the air on a wind turbine. The U.S. Department of Energy is demanding Wind Energy to support 20% of the U.S. Electricity Supply by the year 2030 and we are currently at only 2%. So, if you are tired of that boring job and want a good, green job within a growing industry, now is the time!
Students can expect an innovative approach to wind turbine training that will include classroom, computer-based and hands-on training. Our green energy training programs will teach students the technical skills necessary to service, repair, and maintain the demanding requirements of wind energy. Students will become familiar with the basic concepts of rigging, multi-meters, AC/DC electrical systems, hydraulics, computerized data collection, how to utilize solar energy training and more. Upon completion of this wind turbine technician training program, students will understand the need to follow industry critical safety requirements. Students will also be able to confidently demonstrate their newly developed skills. Graduates of this program will be fully prepared for jobs in wind power and qualified for entry-level positions as wind turbine technicians.

“I’m a recent graduate from NW-REI. Shortly after graduation I was hired by GE for Installation & Receiving. During my time at GE’s training facility I truly realized and greatly appreciate how much I had really learned at NW-REI to prepare me and provide me the opportunity to be ahead of the curve.”

“I’m doing well, just finished filling out paperwork for Siemens. Happy to say I will be starting with Siemens real soon. I am eager to get started in the Wind Energy Field and start using the skills I learned while attending NW-REI. I know without the education from NW-REI I would not have this opportunity. I want to thank you and the staff at NW-REI for everything.”
