VAN WERT —U. S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) paid a visit to Blue Creek Wind Farm, north of Van Wert, on Thursday afternoon. While it was the senator’s first local wind farm visit, he stated that it was certainly not his first visit to a wind farm.
Brown used the opportunity to highlight a job-training agreement between Iberdrola Renewables and Vantage Career Center. Blue Creek Wind Farm has a long partnership with Vantage Career Center to help tailor curriculums so students will be prepared for jobs in the wind industry.
According to Brown, he wrote a law that promotes sector-based partnerships to ensure workforce training programs are developed in such a way that industry had input so that the training would develop the knowledge and skills needed to meet the needs of companies.
