The Purdue Research Foundation and Oxygen Education LLC have teamed up to offer online green technology training. Green Generalist Training is designed to provide educational institutions, business, industry and workforce development initiatives to provide training in green IT. "Making Green Generalist Training available online to the public will provide the opportunity to learn about green technology, global sustainability and the associated cost-cutting practices," said Joseph B. Hornett, senior vice president, treasurer and COO of the Purdue Research Foundation.
"Interest in environmentally friendly methods is booming, and people trained to understand how to address sustainability issues will be able to market themselves better to prospective employers," Hornett said.
The program focuses on environmental issues facing manufacturers and how business can redesign their processes to use environmentally friendly practices.
