Newsom: Congrats, green grads

Graduates of The City’s first training program for green jobs received praise today from Mayor Gavin Newsom.

The students successfully passed the “Environmental Field Technician” training program, preparing them for jobs in a growing environmental remediation field, according to the Mayor’s Office.

Students learned to sample, analyze and monitor groundwater, storm water, surface water, sediments and air and dust, among other entities.

“Times are tough, so we need to get creative about how we find

people jobs,” Newsom said in a statement.

The program is “one module” of The City’s Green Skills Academy, which is scheduled to launch later this year.
