Green Pathways

Finding your way through the many career options and training programs can be difficult. The Green Careers Coalition has created a set of Green Careers Pathways charts for information on green collar jobs and training programs in Ulster County. The charts explore an industry exploding with job opportunities across three major green sectors, identifying the sorts of credentials necessary to do them well.

Three sectors of Green Career Pathways have been identified: High Performance Building, Clean Energy, and Water. The pathways charts the identify training necessary to succeed in each field, salaries from entry level to master level, what jobs you can get with each certification, and options available to help pay for training.

Information on the chart is based on current New York State Department of Labor statistics for New York State. Many in-demand jobs from entry to master levels have been identified, however not all are listed.
