Summary

Northern Maine Community College partnered with wind turbine company Vestas to develop the college’s Wind Power Technician program, a 71-credit AAS degree that offers broad fundamental training in the electrical, electronic, and mechanical aspects of the wind power industry, with a focus on wind turbine maintenance and electrical power production. It’s the first of its kind at a post-secondary institution in New England. The program is small and very new, but Vestas hired two students last year, an intern, and has indicated plans for hiring at least 10 this spring.
