FITech Wind Power

FITech offers wind power training for those already working in the sector and those looking to transition into it

Renewable energy sources are a key factor in the green transition and a prerequisite for producing clean hydrogen in Finland. The FITech Wind Power program adds wind power-related education to FITech’s renewable energy course offerings.

The wind power sector requires skilled professionals. Stakeholders’ expertise must cover technical, economic, societal, environmental, and ecological requirements. While education and experience in the energy sector provide a solid foundation, individuals from diverse educational backgrounds, such as biology, geography, meteorology, or social sciences, can also enter the wind power industry with additional training.

The FITech Wind Power focuses on wind power project development. It offers content suitable for those already working in the wind power sector and those looking to transition into it.

The FITech Wind Power program is available free of charge until the early spring of 2025. However, spots are limited, which is why students will be selected based on a motivational letter for some courses and events.
