Searching for something new!

Cody Hopkins was searching for something new when he became aware of KVCC's Wind Turbine Technician Academy. He had held several jobs in construction, animal breeding and medical device businesses but was anxious to pursue a career, in a leading edge growth field, that aligned with his desire to be outdoors. After doing his research and making a visit to the Groves Center, he was sold by the positive atmosphere, practical curriculum, and instructor enthusiasm/expertise that the WTTA offered. Cody graduated from the 4th WTTA (December, 2011). After being hired by EDF Renewable Services (the largest wind turbine service company) and working for 6 months in Wyoming, Cody was promoted to Advanced Technician and Safety Lead and relocated to Michigan.
