Wind technician and solar installers are the first and third fastest growing jobs in the U.S. according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Did you know these sectors employ Veterans at a rate 61 percent higher than the national average?

Join Power Up Illinois and our partners Solar Ready Vets this Veterans Day to learn about certification and career-readiness training opportunities in partnership with Illinois’ community colleges and labor apprenticeship programs.

This webinar is intended for both the military community (transitioning service members, Veterans, National Guard, reservists and military spouses) and for educators (counselors or military transition specialists) to provide insight on career opportunities in Illinois.

As the third fastest growing state in the U.S. for new wind and solar generation, Illinois is poised to be a leader in job creation in the advanced energy field.
