Austin Community College has made a commitment to help prepare the local workforce for a bright future in renewable energy technologies. Whether you are interested in the installation of solar panels, systems designed to support new renewable energy technologies, or simply wanting to learn more about this emerging industry, ACC can help you get there! ACC is currently developing a wide range of programs and courses that focus on the renewable energy field, with a strong emphasis on solar power technologies. Below you will find information on ACC's current course offerings as well as those in development.
Continuing Education Courses
These courses prepare students to pass industry certification exams required for working in the field of solar technology installation. ACC also hosts these certification exams in the ACC Business Assessment Center.
The development of Austin Community College's renewable energy programs (both college credit and continuing education) have been made possible in part by funding from Workforce Solutions - Capital Area, the City of Austin's Austin Energy Solar for Schools program, and the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts' State Energy Conservation Office (SECO).
