The trailer will also be a part of ATEA's 45th National Conference on Technical Education in Biloxi, Miss. on Thursday, April 3. The new Green Training Trailer has been specifically designed to provide UA members and MCA and MSCA affiliated associations with training related to the newest sustainable technologies.


Sustainable technologies, sometimes called Green Technologies, use less energy and natural resources than traditional technologies, have minimal impact on the environment, and use materials that can be reused or recycled. These new technologies will be used in construction and retrofitting in both commercial and residential projects. UA members will play a major role in the implementation of sustainable building and servicing methods.
