    China Wind Will Re-Train U.S. Coal Workers

    Chinese company offers free wind energy training to former US coal miners

    Jacob Snyder, May 25, 2017 (WISTV)

    “…[Chinese wind-turbine manufacturer Goldwind Americas, looking for workers to take permanent jobs on the Wyoming wind farms they supply, is planning] a free training program for one of the United States' fastest-growing jobs: the wind farm technician. The program is aimed at former coal miners who are having trouble finding work, as well as professionals from other industries. It's called ‘Goldwind Works,’ and will begin next month with a series of informational seminars and safety training at a wind farm in Montana…Goldwind Americas has an agreement to supply nearly 850 wind turbines to a site in Wyoming, where the state's first coal mine opened a century ago. After construction is finished, up to 200 workers will be needed to work at the plant…The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects the national employment for miners and geological engineers will grow by 6 percent over the next decade, while those working in wind energy will enjoy a growth rate of 108 percent.” click here for more
