Tonight at 6:30 at the Sustainability Center, 111 N Albany St., there will be a Green Jobs Panel featuring local leaders actively aiming toward a triple bottom line in their businesses/organizations. Workers will shed light on their experiences working in local green jobs. The panel will be moderated by Gladys Brangman, from the Green Resource Hub and Dee Gamble of Taitem Engineering will be part of the panel.
Taitem is helping to develop the training materials and will be leading some of the sessions at the Small Commercial Energy Auditor Training this May at SUNY Buffalo.
Meeting the goals of the Green Jobs Green New York (GJGNY) initiative requires a significant increase in the number of qualified Commercial Energy Auditors trained to address the needs of smaller organizations and facilities. This seven-day pilot course was designed for experienced commercial energy auditors and other technically qualified individuals, and will train them to support the Energy Efficiency Portfolio Standard (EEPS) and the GJGNY Small Business and Not-For-Profit program.
There is NO CHARGE for this training session. This is an opportunity to expand your skills and career potential at NO COST! Sign up for the SMALL COMMERCIAL ENERGY AUDITOR TRAINING, May 12-16th at SUNY Buffalo, Millard Fillmore College.
