Location: 
Various approved locations throughout the United States.
Length: 
45 hours (15 weeks)
Dates: 

February 2014 - December 2018.

Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to: discuss alternative energy generation and the rationale for clean electrical energy; demonstrate proper safety processes for wind energy work flow; discuss various forms of energy and physical laws of conservation of energy and thermodynamics, relative to alternative power systems; identify and discuss the components of wind turbine design; discuss and demonstrate understanding of residential wind-power system installation; create correctly sized connectivity cabling; demonstrate proper crimping techniques for attaching crimp connectors to cabling; configure and properly connect a hand-held multimeter to perform voltage measurements in a circuit; configure and properly connect a hand held multimeter to perform resistance and continuity; identify common color code for crimp connectors designed to work with different AWG wire sizes; determine the capabilities of DC sources created by wiring multiple voltage sources in series with each other; determine the capabilities of DC sources created by wiring multiple voltage sources in parallel with each other; describe how power consumption is different in AC and DC circuits; determine which type of power rating is used to determine wire sizes and fusing values for AC circuits; employ Ohms Law to determine the level of current flowing in a circuit given supply voltage and load resistance; given a load device with resistance and current requirements, use Ohms Law to determine the size of the voltage source required to meet the specifications; and identify the major components of a wind turbine electrical generation system.

Instruction: 

The Residential Wind Turbine Installer course is offered in a traditional classroom format consisting of interactive lectures, demonstrations, proctored skills applications/lab activities, and proctored testing. End of course mastery performance is measured using  hands-on demonstration of identified wind turbine installation process components using specified wind turbine technology equipment.

Credit recommendation: 
In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category, 3 semester hours in Wind Turbine Installation (2/14).
