Europe – as well as other parts of the world experience challenges building capacity and necessary programs for training and education for both on- and offshore wind. With the ongoing build out, and the huge growth coming up for the next years, it is crucial to develop this capacity and further develop the existing training and educational programs, as well as developing new ones, securing needed up-skilling and re-skilling for the industry both technical as well as for Health and Safety.
To be able to achieve this we need to collaborate cross industries, as well as cross nations through regional and international collaboration.
Visit us at Egersund Energy Hub to learn more about training and education available, and the workforce development needed especially towards vocational trained skilled workers.
You will meet students, instructors, teachers, governmental representatives as well as representatives from Energy Innovation, The Norwegian Competence Centre for Offshore Wind, Rogaland Polytechnical College, NORCE and the University of Stavanger.
