Renewable Energis Technology Diploma

Our Renewable Energy Technology Diploma program is designed to provide hands-on training, equipping students with the skills needed to develop renewable energy sources for a sustainable environment. From airports to schools, stores, and homes, the demand for renewable energy solutions is on the rise, driven by a growing need for electronic solutions to restore peace of mind in an uncertain world.

Renewable energy technicians play a vital role in ensuring the efficient functioning of equipment that collects, generates, or distributes power through alternative means. Whether specializing in solar photovoltaic installation or wind turbine maintenance, these technicians work both indoors and outdoors, collaborating with engineers, designers, and installers to design, plan, and manage the installation of alternative energy systems.

Upon completion of our program, graduates will be adept at installing, maintaining, and repairing equipment that harnesses renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and geothermal power.

Our program places a strong emphasis on practical learning, with students spending a significant portion of their time engaged in hands-on activities. From practical exams to trade-related tasks, students will demonstrate their competence in a real-world setting within our dedicated Renewable Energy Technology Technician lab.

Furthermore, students will have the opportunity to gain invaluable industry experience through a 36-week co-op placement with a licensed company, working under the supervision of qualified technicians and engineers.

Developed in consultation with industry experts, our program is tailored to both youth and adults with a passion for the renewable energies industry. Graduates will be prepared for entry-level roles in solar panel installation, wind turbine maintenance, and troubleshooting, where demand is high and earning potential is promising. Employers in the renewable energy technology sector stand to benefit from a highly trained and experienced workforce, contributing to the strengthening of British Columbia’s economy.

With the clean energy sector’s GDP forecasted to grow by 58% by 2030, the demand for skilled professionals in renewable energy technology continues to surge. As more individuals opt for renewable energy solutions, opportunities for career advancement, competitive remuneration, and comprehensive benefits abound in Canada’s clean energy sector.

Our program also emphasizes a hands-on approach to training, with industry-focused experience gained in our workshop complemented by theoretical components integrated into the curriculum. Industry tours provide students with exposure to a variety of work environments, further enhancing their learning experience.

In addition to technical training, students will undergo essential safety certifications, including WHMIS, Working at Heights, Elevating Work Platforms, Lockout & Tag Safety, Scaffold Users’ Hazard Awareness, and Confined Spaces Hazard Awareness. Moreover, students will receive instruction in Canadian electrical code, AutoCAD fundamentals, energy conservation building construction, HVAC systems, technical communications, and more.

Join us on this journey towards a greener, more sustainable future. Enroll in the Renewable Energy Technology Diploma Program today and become a catalyst for positive change in the renewable energies industry.
