Offshore Wind (OWTI)

Fotis - wind

As part of the largest public investment in offshore wind workforce development by any state in the country, the State University of New York (SUNY) and New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) have launched New York’s Offshore Wind Training Institute (OWTI) to train 2,500 workers. 

Through a partnership between Stony Brook University and Farmingdale State College, the $20 million investment in the new training institute will advance offshore wind training programs and educational infrastructure needed to establish a skilled workforce that can support the emerging national offshore wind industry. 

Please review (below) the first solicitation, Program Opportunity Notice (PON) 4595, for offshore wind training and skills development.
