Columbia Gorge Community College is hosting an annual Renewable Energy Technology Career Fair for enrolled students on April 4 from 10 a.m. to noon. This career fair attracts highly skilled RET students with experience in electrical systems, mechanical systems, and electronics with a focus on the renewable-energy industry.
Many RET students have previous degrees or extensive life experience. Employers from any realm of the RET sector — wind, solar, hydro and electronics, and advanced manufacturing — are invited to attend to share information about their company and/or jobs in the sector.
Employers are encouraged to register today to secure a booth space for the fair. Employers may register to have a booth at the event by visiting the RET website at http://bit.ly/1f6Pgtv. The event will be held at CGCC The Dalles campus. Electricity and wireless Internet are available on an as-needed basis.
About the Renewable Energy Technology Program: Students in the RET program may receive a nine-month certificate or a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree. Both programs have coursework in electrical engineering, mechanics, and electronics.
The nine-month certificate program prepares students for employment in renewable energy with a focus on the wind industry. The two-year degree program prepares students for employment in a broad range of industries including wind-generation, hydro-generation, solar-generation, automated manufacturing and engineering.

‘I can’t keep quiet,’ sing members of an impromptu choir in front of Hood River Middle School Saturday prior to the citizen town hall for questions to Rep. Greg Walden. The song addresses female empowerment generally and sexual violence implicitly, and gained prominence during the International Women’s Day events in January. The singers braved a sudden squall to finish their song and about 220 people gathered in HRMS auditorium, which will be the scene of the April 12 town hall with Rep. Greg Walden, at 3 p.m. Enlarge
