Green Program/Course Listings

This database highlights profiles of community college green job training programs and courses from across the country. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list. Rather, it is the beginning of a resource that SEED, with the assistance of community college self-reporting, will periodically update and refine.

Note: These are not necessarily nationally recognized programs. The SEED Center started with colleges that have taken some leadership role with regard to green training and sustainability, either through the ACUPCC, AACC’s Sustainability Task Force, or other means.

New course in operation, repair and maintenance of alternative auto systems including; hybrid and hydrogen.

An introduction to greenbuilding, a college-level building construction course intended to help students fulfill degree requirements in construction management. Since our courses are intended for transfer to a four-year institution, they will be taught at the University level.

3 credits. Reviews the different components and the respective functions of solar thermal systems. Covers the financial aspects of installing different solar thermal systems such as cost, energy savings, and return of investments. Inspection and installation of various types of solar thermal systems. Emphasis will be placed on hands-on training.

The contents of this course will focus on the installation of different types of photovoltaic systems such as pole mounted, roof mounted, grid-tied, nongrid tied and battery backup or hybrid systems. This course will allow participants with the opportunity to practice hands-on installation of these systems. The course is geared for participants and students who have already completed a solar photovoltaic course and or have some knowledge of photovoltaic systems.

A study of materials and devices that are used to make buildings more efficient. Reviews different types of materials as well as how to do assessments of existing structures.
