THE UHCC RENEWABLE ENERGY TRAINING SUMMIT SERIES
As a leader in teaching innovation, the UHCC-Johnson Controls Education Program launched a series of educational summits designed to prepare Hawaii's workforce for the ever expanding green building and renewable energy market. The first Summit held in Fall 2011 at Honolulu Community College provided technical trends in all aspects of the solar industry from local and national industry experts and sold out to campus and industry participants from across Hawaii. The second Summit held in Spring 2012 at Leeward Community College focused on LEED GA Training and sold out quickly, so we are bringing more LEED training for Fall 2012.
