Veterans Green Jobs Teams Up With Bucks County Community College

In January 2011, Veterans Green Jobs in partnership with the Bucks County Community College’s Green Jobs Academy and Independent Electrical Contractors – Chesapeake, will be commencing their second class for the Solar/Electrical Pre-Apprenticeship Program in Bristol, Pennsylvania.

“It is critical that 21st century job training is available to veterans when they return home to Bucks County from overseas,” said Senator Tomlinson. “The combination of Veterans Green Jobs and Bucks County Community College will allow many veterans the opportunity to become skilled in one of the fastest growing job sectors in the nation.”

Veterans Green Jobs is seeking honorably discharged veterans residing in Pennsylvania who are looking to enter the solar and electrical fields.

The program is 12 weeks long and is full time (5 days a week).  The training is a combination of class room style lecture and hands-on training.  Applications are due to the Green Jobs Academy by December 3, 2010.  The program will commence on January 10, 2011.  Course funding assistance is available for eligible veterans.
