Cincinnati State provides training for a green workforce

Cincinnati State Technical and Community College has quickly become the region's leader in sustainability education. As the number of green jobs in the U.S. continues to increase, access to quality instruction for professionals is becoming important. Many times, those looking for sustainable education opportunities are forced to commute long distances to receive training. Hopefully the availability of these classes will make Cincinnati a hot spot for green education and job growth in the future.

Cincinnati State currently offers a range of different sustainable education opportunities. Students can major in areas of study like renewable energy/energy efficiency, or they can choose to take certification courses at the Workforce Development Center. Certifications can be received in energy auditing, sustainable building (LEED), and solar panel installation.
