CCV-Rutland to Offer New Free Course
MONTPELIER—Community College of Vermont in Rutland is partnering with Green Mountain Power to offer a new course beginning next week.
Current Environmental Issues is a three-credit course funded through the Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training Grants Program (TAACCCT) grant and the Department of Labor and thus will be offered at no cost to students.
Discussion of current environmental issues will be facilitated by CCV faculty and a selected group of Green Mountain Power employees.
This course is also aligned with Vermont Technical College’s agribusiness programs and a VTC representative will discuss the variety of offerings including bee-keeping, beer-brewing, and cheese-making.
Students can expect to learn and discuss issues such as climate change, globalization, and energy use both in Vermont and on a global scale.
Classes will take place at both the CCV-Rutland Academic Center located at 60 West Street in Rutland and at Green Mountain Power locations including the Energy Innovation Center in downtown Rutland.
The class starts Monday, March 23 and runs for seven weeks from 6:00-8:45 pm.
Interested participants can fill out an online application at http://ccv.edu/apply/workforce-education/ or call CCV-Rutland at 802-786-6996.
