Clean Energy Workforce Development Program

EGLE is offering financial assistance to support education and training for the clean energy workforce. This program will address gaps in Michigan’s public and private advanced energy workforce development training, for both participants and employers, increase access to wrap around services for training participants, and continue to build and maintain relationships with educational institutions at all levels.
