Since September 2013, the WindLab has been teaching for the future: qualifying training as a "wind farm maintenance technician". An initiative led by the Picardie Region, in close collaboration with companies in a rapidly expanding sector that provides jobs.
WindLab is a true pioneer. Installed on the site of the Cité Scolaire Amiens Sud, this platform was imagined and created by the Picardie Region to meet the needs expressed by the wind energy professionals.
1.8 million euros were invested for the construction and equipment of this platform dedicated to the wind energy sector.
The main activities of WindLab are:
- communication and orientation dedicated to the wind business. WindLab is in charge of welcoming and informing this sector of the future with
- schoolchildren, jobseekers looking for retraining or the general public,
- qualifying training for the sector's most representative profession, the "wind farm maintenance technician",
- research and development of projects for companies in the sector, but also the testing of tools and equipment.
93% of the trainees found work, 88% of them in the wind field.
