Piedmont Community College will offer a Green Production class from Nov. 2 – Nov. 10. This class will be held on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 8 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. at the Workforce Training Center on 303 South Morgan Street, Roxboro.

Providing a certification in enhancing sustainability, increasing energy efficiency, conserving resources, and reducing regulatory costs, the Green Production class offers the opportunity for students to participate in a comprehensive environmental consciousness program.

“It deals with the awareness of negative environmental impacts,” comments instructor, Mike Cobb. Students will receive training on environmental laws such as the Clean Water Act and CERCLA, energy conservation, including energy consumption studies provided by the Department of Energy.

Also included is product lifecycle awareness (cradle to grave), new technologies and processes to eliminate waste and replacement of raw materials to environmentally friendly raw materials, with emphasis on the 4R’s: refuse, reduce, reuse, and recycle, to conserve and protect natural resources. “These listed items just scratch the surface of the material covered in this program. There is so much more information covered in Green Manufacturing,” shared Cobb.

Upon completion of training, students will be prepared to obtain employment in advanced manufacturing facilities. Cobb went on to say, “Student receiving this Certification are equipped with the knowledge to positively participate with their employers in recognizing at risk potential environmental hazards, reducing contamination of the communities we live in as well as reduce potential Environmental Protection Agency fines to their employers.”

In addition, students will earn a North Carolina Career Readiness Certification.
