Southwestern Technical College in Jackson Minnesota will be the first technical college in the US to offer classes teaching the management of wind plants. "We'll hire graduates," Jim Gislason of Wind World told the Jackson County Pilot newspaper. A one year programme will lead to a wind energy mechanic diploma, says Garey Lum of the college. Classes will begin September 6. The programme has been established with the help of a special task force. Adequate jobs should be available, although not entirely in southwest Minnesota. Gislason says graduates should find jobs in Minnesota, Iowa, California, Texas, Montana and Hawaii. The campus has nine electrical education programmes already.
