Renewable Energy Academy of Virginia, LLC
The Renewable Energy Academy, a subsidiary of Pleasants Industries, Inc prepares citizens, young and old, to meet the needs of a fast-growing renewable energy workforce as well as make their communities and the earth a cleaner safer place for us all.
Launching in 2019, our Renewable Energy Academy of Virginia, will address the shortfall in basic market information for organisations and individuals involved within or interested in the renewable energy industry. Our courses will help to educate the worldwide business community, workers getting enhanced training and those seeking new skills in this field of work. This education will facilitate the rapid adoption of renewable energy. Change is increasing in the energy markets. Training will improve the adaptability of your employees to cope, recognize and respond to new trends as they happen – they must internalize new knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to cope with the demands of the new career landscape.
Instructors have a broad range of renewable energy expertise and real-world experience. The Academy will partner will local schools, universities and businesses in order to create a robust curriculum that will both meet the needs of students as well as the business or organizations they will serve.
