Highland Community College, where I work, is the first community college in the state to offer training for Wind Turbine Technicians. We are actually one of only a handful of programs throughout the US.
We accepted 16 students into the program for this first semester of the program. The students range in age from 18 - 48. This particular class is all guys. Yesterday was their first tower climb all 240 ladder rungs of it! Click here for a quick slideshow of the climb.
Pictures are courtesy of Nancy Barker. She does a great job with the different shots and putting a fun "spin" on things. I especially like the shot of my boss and the reflection of the turbines in his sunglasses. If you want to see some of her other work, drop on over to her website.
