Wind training program

Tucumcari, NM - Mesalands Community College is also making big strides in wind energy.

Twenty three students graduated this year as the first class to complete the two-year training degree.

The school was also one of the first programs to provide a hands-on learning environment.

They've put up a wind turbine in the middle of town so students can practice. And by October, they hope to open the new North American Wind Energy Research Facility.

The program says enrollment is steady, and a high level of recent graduates are finding job.
