Unemployed seek training for ‘green collar’ jobs

With unemployment increasing, community colleges across the country report a surge of unemployed workers enrolling in courses that can train them for “green-collar” jobs.

Students can learn how to install solar panels, repair wind turbines, produce biofuels and do other work related to renewable energy. In order to keep up with the increasing demand, two-year colleges are launching or expanding green job training with money from the federal stimulus package.
