'Green' Careers Information Session to be Hosted by DCC

September 10, 2010 – The Dutchess Community College Office of Community Services and the Clean Energy Technology Training Consortium are teaming up to offer a free information session on careers available in green technologies, and the training needed to get jobs in the emerging field. The session will be held Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. in room 122 of Bowne Hall on the main DCC campus in Poughkeepsie.

Experts in the green technology field will provide an industry overview and talk about why green makes sense not only environmentally, but financially. The program will end with breakout sessions highlighting the courses, both credit and non-credit, DCC offers that serve as preparation for a career in green technologies and renewable energy.

The Office of Community Services also offers green training programs customized for individual businesses.
