AUSTIN COMMUNITY COLLEGE
Austin Community College made an early commitment to prepare the Austin/RR workforce for a future in "Green Jobs." ACC led the I-35 Corridor (from DFW to S.A.) in planning a "Greening of the Trades." Our award-winning "Campus Sustainability" projects (go to: http://www.austincc.edu/sustainability/index.php), make ACC a leader in Walking-the-Talk! Whether you're interested in Green Biz., Green Construction, Renewable Energy, or Environmental Science...ACC can help. Start Here - Get There...You've Got Options!
We are a national pioneer in Renewable Energy training and certification (NABCEP). ACC has represented the TX State Energy Office-SECO (since 2004) "seeding" Solar Energy training throughout Texas (Solar Train-the-Trainer), and was the only college "demo" site for the US Dept. of Labor Women's Bureau "Women in Green Jobs" Campaign. We offer a wide variety of nationally-funded Workforce Training programs, through Workforce Solutions & partner "pathways-out-of-poverty" NGO's around ATX (Goodwill Industries, American Youthworks, Skillpoint Alliance, Capital Idea). New programs include; Trades Training (Electrical/HVAC/Plumbing at Round Rock & RVS). 2 + 2 B.A.A.S. Degrees in "Sustainable Building" (ONLINE w/Stephen F Austin State University). SMART GRID instruction with the ACC Electronics & Advanced Tech. Program (all located at the ACC Riverside).
