A PATH TO SUCCESS

Begin a training program that will increase your ability to work on Martha’s Vineyard as a technician in the offshore wind industry! This training program and certificate is offered to any adult on Martha’s Vineyard interested in a career in applied wind technology, “green energy,” renewable energy and engineering. It is also offered to MVRHS students as part of a 29 college-credit Certificate Program.

You will learn aspects of applied technology such as electrical machinery, fluid systems, materials science and gain hands-on experience with assembly, installation, operation and maintenance of wind power systems.

 AN OPPORTUNITY FOR YEAR-ROUND EMPLOYMENT

The offshore wind industry is expanding along the US Eastern seaboard — it is estimated that will directly create thousands of jobs for the south coast through development, construction and operations over the next 25-30 years. Start training now and get in on the ground floor!

WHEN AND WHERE WILL THE COURSES BE OFFERED?

Where: The majority of classes will be taught at the MV Regional High School by Bristol Community College faculty.

When: First classes start January 22, 2020 and are scheduled for the early evening to accommodate a person who is employed during the day and for MVRHS students.

Duration: It is estimated that it will take applicants up to two years to complete the full Certification Program.

WHO IS OFFERING THIS TRAINING PROGRAM?

ACE MV, Vineyard Power Cooperative and Bristol Community College are partnering to provide this certificate.

Financial Assistance and Scholarships are available. Requirements for enrollment include authorization to work in the USA, high school math, the ability to speak and write English fluently and clearly, and must have a head for heights and legs for the sea. This program is funded in part by a grant from Vineyard Wind and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center.

Our new Executive Director, Holly Bellebuono, speaks to the MV Times about her new appointment and her vision for the organization.

“ACE MV serves various constituencies, providing courses for adults and high school students and graduates,” Bellebuono says. “One of the Island’s needs we address is providing for-credit college and certification courses that are otherwise difficult to achieve due to travel logistics. Because ACE MV works in partnership with accredited institutions as well as drawing on experts who live here and serve as our faculty, we can help year-rounders advance their career goals.”
