Mobile Unit Purchased to Train Green Job Workers

Posted by Charles Cox - On June 16, 2011 (EST)

In 2010, the Arkansas Department of Workforce Services (DWS) received a $4.8 million grant from the U.S. Department of Labor to provide training for green jobs in the following areas: energy efficient building, construction and retrofitting; renewable electric power; and energy efficiency assessment. The grant was funded with American Recovery and Reinvestment Act dollars. As a result, the Arkansas Apprenticeship Coalition, with a sub-grant it received from the Arkansas DWS, purchased the new mobile training unit to aid in apprenticeship training for jobs in "green" industries.
