A preview of public events at the University of Minnesota, Morris and elsewhere.
In a long-standing tradition, a 4-H Club encampment for the members of 4-H Clubs in west central Minnesota will be held on campus from June 20 through June 23.
With support from the Minnesota Office of Energy Security, Windustry has created a standardized curriculum for Small Wind Installers. The six-credit course, aimed at workforce development for the expanding small wind industry, is the first of its kind in the country in that it is designed to prepare students to test for Small Wind Installer Certification by the North American Board of Certified Energy Professionals (NABCEP). Windustry and UMM will host 20 Minnesota community and technical college instructors from across the state from June 20 through June 24 to rollout the curriculum in train-the-trainer sessions. The training will equip instructors to create their own courses based on the curriculum. Students will learn about the entire installation process, from marketing to follow-up maintenance. The training also includes assistance in establishing an "apprenticeship" within Minnesota dealer networks. Based in Minneapolis, Windustry is a nonprofit organization partnered with the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP), another nonprofit organization that promotes resilient family farms, rural communities and ecosystems around the world through research and education, science and technology, and advocacy.
