TNEC was awarded a $300,000 grant through the state. Funding for the grant was provided by MassCEC, (Massachusetts Clean Energy Center). The grant is tied to MassCEC’s Wind Energy Program. TNEC plans to provide 30 hours of in-person and online training over the next two years to students who plan to work as engineers, technicians, field supervisors or project managers in the offshore wind energy industry — and anyone else employed in the field.
TNEC’s training program will be embedded in a 21 course program through Ben Franklin Institute of Technology, UML, and UMass Amherst. Students who take the 30-hour TNEC course will also receive an OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) certification.
