NorthWest Arkansas Community College (NWACC) in Bentonville, Arkansas, is helping put Arkansas on the map with its green-jobs training. I am the director of the Department of Building Sciences at the college. Since 2003, the department has offered electrical and plumbing apprenticeship and HVAC training. In 2010 and 2011, Building Sciences received several energy efficiency- and green jobs-related training grants from the Arkansas Energy Office, Arkansas Weatherization Assistance program, and Arkansas Department of Workforce Services. The objectives of these grants are to train students to national standards in energy auditing, HVAC duct sizing, and weatherization, and to infuse green practices into existing trades.
