I may repeat this conclusion of my project that started in Eilat, Israel. I've advertised a conference for the Greentech college willing to offer an occupational training course to the Charedi community in the Negev Desert. Ohers may follow the footpath I tread I went at the behest of mayor to what's called the chevra calcahlit - Community Business Administration. The Department head is well aware of the feasibility of solar energy, but had the mistaken impression that the government subsidies had expired. From there I went to Community Education Administration offices to request tuition subsidies like those paid to students wishing to learn cyber communication social skills, or how to run a business. They are not authorized to teach a profession to city residents, especially the unemployed. The classroom facility they use may be rented. Probing deeper, I respectfully asked, who makes decisions as which course instruction is made available, to wit three hundred jobs are being creating for solar installers. So, I have the course syllabus prepared and ready to provide occupational skills to those who wish to work in the field.
I agreed to the date which the course could be offered during the Summer days when the Charedi men are on vacation; a 5 day week-long instruction eight hours a day or a viable schedule. There shall also be training for Charedi wives as an objective for women's employment as required to provide customer services. The subject matter will emphasize the value of renewable energy to the simple homeowner. We discussed, July 3rd, Rosh Chodesh Tammuz for a conference setting, the subject matter of the course is the levels of being a licensed installer; estimate material for construction, city permits and the funding process, installation. These discussions between the Community Education (MATI) Administration and I led me to the director of the Southern Regional director of the Business Administration (Saknut l'Ehsakim Ketanim) and who mentioned the possibilities of subsides, but procedure requires a Public Offering to wit three respondents must submit their bids. We'll see what becomes of the sun.
