The GIW Portal is a free service for the Green Industry to help train employees, potential employees, and students wanting to gain certifications and licenses or the knowledge needed to improve their lives and careers.
The GIW Portal is hosted by Auburn University at Montgomery and content will be added as needed to help the industry and educators. Live training and testing may be scheduled during the year, but at this time is limited to the Appalachian Region of Alabama. Partnering sponsors, willing to supplement training costs, may schedule the training anywhere outside of Alabama's ARC Region.
We are proud to announce that our new “brick and mortar” home is the Pelham Civic Complex and we will be offering lots of one-day classes and multi-day expos and programing over the years. The facility is beautiful and offers seating for 15-500 attendees and is a perfect location for business meetings and company educational programming. Let me know if I can help you with arranging any meeting at the PCC. We will continue to offer many live classes throughout the southeast at various locations, so stay tuned.
The GIW Portal and the library of video content, links, and reproducible content will be accessible for study anytime. Live classes and "virtual office hour schedules" are being developed at this time and will be listed on the "Classes and Training" page.
The GIW Portal has been created and will be sustained by a large group of supporters, listed on the "Sponsors and Partners" page. If you want to attend live classes, schedule a class in your area, or would like to help support the GIW efforts, please contact: GIW Educational Director, Fred Kapp: email@example.com or 205-862-2588.
