BayoTech and San Juan College to create graduate program to train workforce on hydrogen production systems.
Program will provide innovative training to equip workforce with the skills needed to support the hydrogen industry.
2 June 2021, FARMINGTON, NM, USA – During the June 1, San Juan College Board of Trustees meeting, BayoTech and San Juan College signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) for the development of an education and training program to support the rapidly-growing hydrogen industry.. Based out of Farmington, New Mexico, San Juan College, will look to create a post-graduate credential program that provides the technical skills needed to work safely and efficiently with hydrogen production systems.
“We are very excited to be working with San Juan College School of Energy on the development of this curriculum,” said BayoTech Chief Operating Officer, Linh Austin. “As we expand, we have a growing need to hire a diverse, highly trained workforce to support the operation of BayoTech’s on-site hydrogen production systems throughout the U.S. and internationally.”
BayoTech is an energy solutions company that offers modular, scalable, and rapidly deployable on-site hydrogen production systems worldwide. With BayoTech’s patented process, hydrogen can be produced at a lower cost and with lower carbon emissions than diesel fuel or legacy steam methane reformers. This combination opens countless near-term opportunities for hydrogen energy globally.
“We are proud to partner with BayoTech to leverage our programs and provide another avenue for students to succeed in the exciting and rapidly evolving energy industry,” said San Juan College President Dr. Toni Hopper Pendergrass.
Named in 2019 as New Mexico’s Center of Excellence for Renewable Energy and Sustainability, San Juan College School of Energy continues its long history of innovation and collaboration to produce a workforce that is fit for purpose and just in time. Uniquely positioned to support emerging technologies such as those found in BayoTech systems, the School of Energy will leverage its experience and strengths to train or retrain workers for hydrogen careers.
As a predominantly minority-serving institution, San Juan College School of Energy is proud to serve a unique and culturally diverse population. Representative of the community, 40 percent of School of Energy Students are Native American and 20 percent are Hispanic. Educating and empowering individuals to thrive in an ever-changing world is the mission of San Juan College.
BayoTech is the leading provider of modular, scalable, and rapidly deployable hydrogen production systems through sales, rentals, leases, and gas-as-a-service to customers worldwide. BayoTech’s on-site hydrogen generators are more efficient than legacy steam methane reformers, leading to lower carbon emissions and low-cost hydrogen. When paired with renewable natural gas (“RNG”) and/or carbon capture, BayoTech’s systems offer the most cost-effective green hydrogen available today.
