New Provincial Program Preparing Students for Green Jobs

The Manitoba government introduced a new program Monday that will give students the skills to work at green jobs.

The Sustainable Energy Program includes eight courses on sustainable/green energy and is available to all students in the Red River Technical Vocational Area, which includes the Border Land, Garden Valley, Red River Valley and Western school divisions as well as the Division scolaire franco-manitobaine.

The program was rolled out at W.C. Miller Collegiate in Altona.

The program is a first for the province and will receive $30,000 towards development through the Technical Vocational Initiative, and $50,000 in new funding to purchase equipment for the current school year.
