LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (DWS) -- Apprenticeship training for jobs in "green" industries just got a lot easier with the purchase of a new Mobile Training Unit.
Improving energy efficiency is a top priority for many businesses and that starts with technology.
"It's going to be more relevant in the future, it's going to have to be. Everybody's wanting to save, conserve energy, and use renewable sources," says Jim Ryan, president for the Arkansas Apprenticeship Coalition.
Ryan says their mobile training unit is truly unique.
"We're trying to teach them green and renewable energy. And that's what all these trainers are. We're trying to teach the things of the future that we know our apprentices are going to have to work with," adds Ryan.
Ryan says the mobile unit is a great way to teach participants in apprenticeship programs more about energy efficiency.
