NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The first 15 students enrolled in a new training program for green-related careers will graduate Friday.
The program, called "Career Pathways for a Green South" is being taught at Trident Technical College in North Charleston. It helps low-income, unemployed and disadvantaged people train for a career in home weatherization.
"Oh man, I couldn't find anything. I put in applications everywhere and it was really tough for awhile," said Jerome Smith, one of the students in the program.
Trident Tech Environmental Program Manager Tim Fulford said, "When they finish the program, they're ready to go out as a class one technician to weatherize homes."
The students go through an intense three-week program.
"As we teach them we can see them get a skill set of how to use foam, how to use metal, how to fix ductwork in a mobile home," said instructor William McGrew.
Student Allen Drayton says, "It's pretty intense, you're learning things. It's kind of fast paced, but it's fun, it's been fun for me."
They are taught how to seal leaks to keep homes cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
"The bottom line is these guys can come in your house, do these things we train them to do and you're gonna see a reduction in energy bills," said Fulford. "That's a win win for everybody."
There is a lot of incentive for the students to graduate because if they get jobs, they can earn up to $20 an hour.
To find out if you qualify for the program, call Larry Bratton at 843-296-9725.
