Secondary vocational education

The transition to green energy calls for professionals. Companies are already short of technical professionals, such as mechanics and installers. There will be many more jobs and professions in the future. Everywhere, but especially in Groningen. Would you also like to work as a professional in green energy? Then put your energy talent to use: choose a secondary vocational course in Groningen. This is where your work matters.

Courses for professionals

Both Noorderpoort and the Alfa College in Groningen offer BOL and BBL courses for energy talent. For example, to become an electrical technician or a heat pump mechanic. A broad course in the field of technology and the energy transition is the Commercial Energy Technician course. You can also choose an elective in green energy, such as hydrogen or energy-neutral building. Will you become one of the professionals we so desperately need? Then check out the education offered by Noorderpoort and the Alfa College in Groningen.

If you’re already working: continue to learn

Already have a job and want to know more about the energy transition and the issues involved? Or do you increasingly have to deal with the energy transition in your work? Then continue to learn with a course or training course at secondary vocational level. Like a short course on heat pumps or solar power (Alfa College). Or the Offshore Wind course (Noorderpoort). More and more courses are being added. After all, a professional never stops learning.

Plenty of work for energy talent

Choose energy education and you are virtually guaranteed a job after your secondary vocational education. As an installer of solar panels or heat pumps, for example. Or as a service technician of wind turbines. Or perhaps as a driver of a hydrogen truck. Great work that suits you and a sustainable future.
