Apply to Attend the First RenuWell Workforce Training Program!

Iron & Earth r1


In Alberta, declining production from conventional oil and gas fields has left 170,000+ inactive wells and more than 136,000 hectares of disturbed land. The RenuWell Project aims to accelerate the clean-up of these sites, while also utilizing the existing roads, powerlines, and disturbed lands to reduce the costs for renewable energy projects. Due to the collaborative efforts of the RenuWell Project partners and with the support of the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre, the RenuWell pilots are breaking ground in Spring 2022!

Iron & Earth and Medicine Hat College are key partners in the RenuWell Project. We’ve been hard at work shaping a customized upskilling program that will prepare fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers for careers in future RenuWell projects, as we look to scale this project model. The program is now finished and we are ready to deliver... the first RenuWell Workforce Training Program!


We are currently accepting applications from fossil fuel industry and Indigenous workers based across Southern Alberta with an interest in learning the skills needed to participate in solar project design, installation and maintenance on projects utilizing inactive oil and gas sites. We are specifically seeking candidates based in or near Medicine Hat, the MD of Taber, Cypress County, County of Forty Mile, Lethbridge County and the County of Warner.

The RenuWell Workforce Training Program will include 6 days of training sessions held Monday to Friday from June 20-27, 2022 between approximately 8 AM - 4 PM MT daily. The training is planned to be held at Medicine Hat College and the RenuWell Project pilot sites located near Taber, Alberta.

Supported by the Municipal Climate Change Action Centre’s Municipal Community Generation Challenge funding and partner contributions for the RenuWell Project pilot, the first offering of the RenuWell Workforce Training Program will be available at no cost to the participants.

If you are interested in attending the RenuWell Workforce Training Program, please apply by May 15, 2022.
