Wind Turbine Technicians are expected to see a projected growth in employment of 61% from 2019 to 2029. Overall occupations and other industrial maintenance positions are only expected to see 7% growth.
Wind turbines continue to expand as the push for increased alternative and renewable energy rises. States throughout the great plains and Midwest are continuing to expand their use of wind energy. Taller towers with larger blades have reduced the cost and made it economically more competitive. They are also much better for the environment than other sources of electrical power generation. As more towers are built, more technicians are needed!
Wind turbine technicians are also finding employment in other industrial maintenance fields - since they have the electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic training but also have climbing and safety training.
To become a wind tech and make it into the field, you need to get your wind turbine certification. Pinnacle Career Institute can help!
