Fort Morgan, CO. 12/02/13.  Morgan Community College (MCC), in partnership with Colorado Mountain College (CMC), is offering solar energy classes for the spring semester. There are two orientations scheduled for Thursday, December 5 at the Fort Morgan campus; a representative from CMC will be available at 2 p.m. and at 6 p.m. in Founders Room for orientation and registration for students considering a career in solar energy.

Students who successfully complete these courses will earn a basic Solar Certificate in one semester, have the opportunity to sit for the NABCEP Basic Solar Exam and become a NABCEP installer, and gain enhanced marketability in the solar workforce.

“These classes will be offered in a hybrid format (online and in classroom). There will be a CMC faculty member on campus for coursework each month for hands-on learning,” says MCC Career Coach Katy Smith.

 

The following three classes are offered starting in January:

EIC 130 National Electric Code: (4 credits) Hybrid model class meets for hands-on learning at MCC from 9:00 to 11:50 a.m. on the following Thursdays: January 16,
