In less than a decade, the green sector has evolved from a small, specialized industry to a significant source of investment, trade, manufacturing and job creation. According to Pew Clean Energy Program, the world has seen 630 percent growth in clean energy finance and investments since 2004, and the sector is emerging as “one of the most dynamic and competitive [industries] in the world.” Just since 2010, the worldwide market grew 30 percent to a record $243 Billion. And, industry insiders are expecting 2012 to be another banner year for clean energy growth.
As markets shift and manufacturers expand production, the demand for educated clean energy professionals is expected to rise as well. In a time when jobs aren’t exactly a dime a dozen in the U.S., the rumors of a green job boom have idle laborers salivating. To create a workforce that can facilitate the growth of this industry, education must come first. Programs offering degrees and certification in the realm of sustainability are sprouting up and improving wildly. One can find a multitude of online courses that will introduce you to the technologies involved in green building and wind and solar power, but very few are accredited programs that will truly put you on track to becoming a valued clean energy professional.
