Wind Turbine

In an effort to provide just-in-time training to members that meets the demands of a growing wind turbine marketplace, IMPACT established a partnership with the Francis Tuttle Technology Center (FTTC) in Oklahoma City. FTTC is a member of the Wind Energy Training Consortium (WETC). The WETC is a group of training institutions recognized by the American Wind Energy Association as promoting essential skill training for wind turbine technicians.

The training focuses on two major areas, tower rescue and torque and tension training. The tower rescue course concentrates on the different forms of fall protection, rescue and evacuation techniques and types of equipment. Participants also learn the proper use, care, and maintenance of height safety equipment used in the wind energy workplace. The Torque and Tension course highlights basic fasteners and safety, mechanical torque, electronic torque and hydraulic torque. This part of the training allows the participant a tremendous amount of hands-on learning and application.

Participants receive nationally recognized certifications from three wind turbine industry leaders - Capitol Safety, Snap-On, and HYTORC upon completion.

Democrat Stacey Abrams has an ambitious jobs program, which she says is the right idea at the right time for the state's future.

SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) - Democrat Stacey Abrams says she's prepared to be the next governor of Georgia.

She has an ambitious jobs program which she says is the right idea at the right time for the state's future.

"I know Georgia can do this and I am the right person to do it," she said.

Abrams visited the Ironworkers Local 709 to talk to them about apprenticeships.

Her jobs program would include increasing the number of registered apprenticeships in Georgia from the current 8,000 to 22,000 by the year 2022. 

"Employees need better access to training like the training we see here today," Abrams said.  "We need good wages in every job and in every community. You shouldn't have to leave home to make a good life for you and your family. 

She says her 11 years in the Georgia legislature has prepared her to lead the state and to help workers as well as small businesses. 

"I know how to lift up the economy of Georgia without putting anyone down," said Abrams who is the first woman and first African American to be selected as a gubernatorial candidate by a major party.   

Although several reporters did, she didn't mention her Republican opponent Brian Kemp by name. Though Abrams did make comments that may have been directed at her opponent. 

"We also have to have an open and inclusive state and that is why I will always defend the pro-business reputation that we have in Georgia for openness and inclusion," she said, adding, "I will fight any legislation or any initiative that would take us backward or that would discriminate against Georgians."
