 Ecotech Institute, the first and only college focused entirely on preparing America’s workforce for careers in renewable energy and sustainability, will host a “Clean Jobs Boot Camp” on Friday, November 9 from 12:00 – 2:00 p.m. Veterans, active military, their families and the general public are invited to come enjoy a catered lunch, take a personalized tour, take part in exciting interactive demos, meet faculty and learn more about the vast opportunities in the cleantech jobs sector.
