A Renewable Energy Skills Training Academy (TRESTA) is being opened in Scotland to provide training for those in the green energy industries, helping to address “a looming skills gap.”
There will be sixty apprentices the first year of TRESTA, they will be trained in a wide variety of useful skills, from welding to first aid. The program will be run by Steel Engineering in Renfrew, near Glasgow.
“The trainees entering this exciting centre can expect to become fully equipped to be an integral part of Scotland’s renewables revolution,” Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond is quoted as saying.
