Interest in a new wind turbine program at Mitchell Technical Institute has surpassed expectations.
Instructor Stacey Eddy says the program, which offers one- and two-year options, will have 50 students in its first year - double what was expected.
Earlier, the Mitchell School Board approved the hiring of a co-instructor.
Students who complete the course will be able to diagnose and fix problems in wind turbines.
The 2009-2010 school year will be Eddy's first year as instructor of a program he is designing from scratch.
