Wake Tech is teaming up with Raleigh's Office of Sustainability to offer a series of green courses, with the first class beginning today.
The Green Building Training Program consists of four training classes: Solar Thermal, Solar Photovoltaic, Sustainable Landscaping and Green Plumbing. The courses include information on solar heating and cooling systems, green training for landscaping professionals as well as new plumbing technologies.
The program empowers small businesses with the knowledge and skills to market themselves in the growing green economy, and is open to individuals who live, work or conduct business within the city of Raleigh.
