N orwalk Community College is pleased to

announce that we are now offering a number
of courses to prepare Connecticut’s workforce for
green-collar jobs. It is expected that the economy
will produce 2 million green jobs in the next 10
years. A green-collar job is one that helps to
conserve energy, promote new technologies and
contribute to the country becoming a more
sustainable nation.
These classes launch the college into the green
energy era. Students completing these courses will
have the opportunity for future employment in
green energy fields which are developing through-
out the United States, as a result of the incentives
offered by President Obama.
Grant money may be available to students who
meet financial eligibility requirements. Please call
203-857-7080 for information.
