Do you know what a “green job” is? According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the Green Job Initiative is growing quickly and these jobs are popping up all over the place.
Green jobs are either:
- Jobs in businesses that produce goods or provide services that benefit the environment or conserve natural resources.
- Jobs in which workers’ duties involve making their establishment’s production processes more environmentally friendly or use fewer natural resources.
Being Trained To Do Green Jobs Is Good For YOUR Future
For heavy equipment operators, being able to say you know how to work in an environmentally friendly fashion means you are highly qualified and hireable. As the environment and natural resources become prioritized, so will green construction jobs. That’s why ATS Heavy Equipment Operator Training School offers green jobs and training. You’ll get the training that qualifies you for the green job initiative and you’ll get the help to find the green jobs where you are located.
These green jobs won’t just be the occasional homeowner wanting to keep the big trees alive while they build their house. It certainly includes individuals, but the Green Job Initiative means that these jobs will be in the commercial construction industry. That’s government projects, infrastructure, and more. It’s big money and it’s going to take heavy equipment operators who are able to do the job the way it needs to be done today, instead of the way it used to be done.
This change in the way heavy equipment is used is slow. You are still going to find jobs where it’s old school. But since there is a growing demand for jobs where it’s ecologically sensitive and new school, ATS provides an awareness of both and competency across the board. You will have a heavy equipment career in the future if you’ve been trained at ATS.
