The Waterpower Hydro Basics Course is organized by the Hydro Training Institute.
This institute is a group of people in the industry who realize there’s an urgent need to provide basic information about the various aspects of hydro to individuals who are new to the market – either right out of college or experienced professionals but new to hydro. The members of the institute have volunteered to put in time and effort to develop a special course designed to meet the needs of educating and training individuals new to the industry.
Because of all the retirements that are occurring in the hydro industry, the need for training courses like the Waterpower Hydro Basics Course is extremely important.
The institute is seeking financial assistance to aid in its training and education efforts. Two levels of support are available:
Level 1 – ‘Institute’ Supporter: $2,500
Level 2 – ‘Basics’ Supporter: $450
