The ETA Education Forum continues to offer a world class conference packed with powerful presentations and training workshops. This year’s ETA Education Forum will be held October 20-22, 2011 in Greencastle, Indiana at The Inn at DePauw & Event Center on the beautiful DePauw University Campus. ETA’s mission is to provide educators and technicians with accredited certification in today’s most in-demand occupations. With train-the-trainer workshops in electric vehicle technology and conference sessions in fiber optics and wireless communication the Education Forum aligns perfectly with this goal and holds up to the high standards of ETA International.
Educators and technicians from around the world are elated at the opportunity to attend training in an emerging occupation of the very near future – Electric Vehicle Technician. With the recent announcement of the Federal goal for one million electric vehicles on the road by 2015 from President Obama, and society’s growing interest in environmental protection, the need for electric vehicle technician training is quickly becoming very widespread. Educators everywhere are grabbing onto this opportunity with both hands. The ETA Education Forum Electric Vehicle Drivetrain Specialist Train-the-Trainer workshops will teach the educator necessary information to develop curriculum, become an ETA approved training provider, and teach their students how to service the electric vehicles that will soon be overtaking the streets of the United States.
Also offered at this year’s ETA Education Forum are the fiber optics related – Yes, You Can Afford Fiber Optic Training and UniCam® Installation Demonstration sessions presented by Bud Shook, Supervisor of Training Service at Corning Cable Systems. The fiber optic training session will demonstrate how Fiber Optic training can be made affordable through Corning Cable Systems’ Class in a Box and how to implement its use. With fiber optics being part of trillion dollar industry in the United States, this training is definitely not to be missed.
