DALLAS, TX - Good Faith Impact, will host a five day "Community Solar Installation Training" on April 10-14 at the Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Center (2922 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd). The training is intended for entry-level workers, interested in launching a career in the growing solar photovoltaic and clean energy technology industries.
According to the 2016 National Solar Jobs Census, conducted by the Solar Foundation, one in every fifty jobs created last year was in the solar industry. Business models nationwide have shown that renewable energy has the potential to stimulate local economies.
"Community-based initiatives, such as workforce training, can achieve sustainable outcomes that rebuild local neighborhoods with the people & resources that are already there," explains Doric Earle, Ph.D, Good Faith Impact board member and committed supporter of the Fair Park district.
The solar training comes at a time where many efforts aim to revitalize South Dallas and Fair Park neighborhoods. Participants from the local community who complete this course will receive certificates of completion, an OSHA-10 certificate, and an introduction to local employers.
All residents of the Dallas community are eligible to apply, with a requirement of two (2) references. The training welcomes veterans and those with a criminal record. No previous experience or education is required. Those interested in attending the training can apply at the GFI website: www.goodfaithimpact.org
