The California Center for Algae Biotechnology (Cal-CAB, previously SD-CAB) and UC San Diego Extension are offering the EDGE Biofuels Certificates again for 2014. Applications for the certificates are open. Enrollment in individual Biofuels courses is also an option, space permitting. The Educating and Developing workers for the Green Economy (EDGE) Initiative was started with funding from the California Department of Labor to create and launch training programs in anticipation of the growth of the biofuels and industrial biotechnology sectors. Download the program flyer here. Courses include:
- Biofuels Science Certificate (online lectures with 3-4 week summer intensive lab course at UCSD)
- Biofuels Processes Certificate (fully online program)
Information on financial assistance available can be found on the UCSD Extension website.
