Carpinteria, Calif.-based Clipper Windpower's technology courses have been added to Elkridge, Md.-based General Physic Corp.'s (GP) wind farm training program on GPiLearn, the company's online training portal.

Adding the Clipper Windpower Technology content allows GP to help more power companies train wind farm technicians and comply with government regulations for the growing renewable energy sector.

"GP already addresses the Zond and Mitsubishi wind farm technologies," says Joe Nasal, vice president of energy services at GP, which is a subsidiary of GP Strategies Corp. "Adding Clipper Windpower technology courses complements our growing library of renewable energy courseware."

There are over 3,200 lessons and exams available on GPiLearn. Industry clients can create custom curricula for their personnel using blended learning solutions. Curricula can include classroom courses, oral boards, job performance measures, comprehensive exams, as well as GPiLearn lessons and exams.
