Alabama Gets $6 Million for Energy Job Training

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama has received $6 million in federal stimulus funds to train people to qualify for jobs in emerging industries focused on renewable energy and energy efficiency.

The grant from the U.S. Department of Labor was awarded to the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs. ADECA Director Doni Ingram said Wednesday the training program will teach the skills for energy-efficient construction and retrofits, renewable electric power, energy-efficient and advanced drive-train vehicle manufacturing, biofuels and energy-efficiency assessment.

Ingram said the grant will help workers who are struggling in the economic downturn develop skills for an emerging industry.
