To honor the sacrifices service men and women have made for the country, Northwest Renewable Energy Institute (NW-REI) is partnering with Northwest Career Colleges Federation to provide qualified active duty and post 9/11 veterans with scholarships toward a future in the renewable energy industry. Free information regarding NW-REI's veteran scholarships and its six-month career program in wind energy will be held at 200 Grand Boulevard, Vancouver, WA 98661 on the following dates:
- February 5th at 7 p.m.
- February 9th at 10:30 a.m.
- February 23rd at 10:30 a.m.
Additionally, NW-REI provides other opportunities for all veterans, including a special scholarship offered to eligible dependents of disabled Post-9/11 veterans. NW-REI works to equip all students for success and to provide aid in the process of applying to, financing, and completing the program. To this end, NW-REI's Financial Aid Department serves as a liaison between the school and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, serving all students eligible to receive VA education benefits. It is NW-REI's goal to come alongside all of its students to partner with them in landing the job of their dreams.
“[NW-REI has] been exceptionally kind in looking after my candidacy for this company, and I want to thank them,” said Chris Wyatt, a recent graduate of the career program. “They put together a strong career services team for NW-REI, and I consider myself lucky to have them on my side!”
NW-REI is the leading renewable energy school in the Pacific Northwest. With green energy in high demand, NW-REI's in-depth technical training and valuable on-the-job experience provides the tools necessary for success in this fast-growing industry. This exciting path to a career in wind power takes students out of a cubicle and puts them 300 feet into the air on a wind turbine. Students can expect an innovative approach to wind turbine training that will include classroom-based training, computer-based training, and hands-on training. Their green energy training programs will teach students the technical skills necessary to service, repair, and maintain wind turbines.
