Train, obtain your certification, align yourself with a company that offers quality products, and stay abreast of new products, methods, processes and code changes.
There's clearly a demand for engineering degrees, particularly mechanical engineers to work on the maintenance and design of wind power components. For the first time ever there's a career path for environmental engineers, as well, as we're witnessing a renaissance of excitement for a field that didn't even exist 5-8 years ago.
The NY Times reports that the federal government is pouring $500 million into training for green jobs, and the sector devoted to energy efficiency is estimated to grow as much as fourfold in the next decade, to some 1.3 million people, according to the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
