Mission Green

Program aims to train veterans for "green" jobs

February 27, 2011 - Mission Green Campbell Crossing, Operation Stand Down Nashville and Tennessee State University recently joined forces to provide opportunities and resources for Veterans in the Greater Nashville and Fort Campbell area.

Mission Green focuses on training veterans for jobs in the green building industry. The program hopes to develop the "Green Collar Workforce" by teaching participants the skills and knowledge that they need to be proficient as entry level technical installers in the green building industry.

Topics to be covered during the training courses include the Department of Energy's (DOE) weatherization requirements for the Weatherization Assistance Program (WAP), which includes testing the diagnostics of homes through cost effective weatherization measures.

Campbell Crossing at Fort Campbell is now an official training site for the WAP program. {continued}
