Five Readily Available Green Jobs Training Programs

Ezra Drissma posted a great article on Yahoo about five readily available green training programs. Here at Everblue, we provide green training for four of the five listed categories, and she lists us as one of the most readily available training options for people. According to her listed prices, our training is very cost effective and also widely available around the country.  
Two things surprised me on the list, though. First, the top-end pricing for some of the training is $15,000 to $25,000. That is a lot of money (maybe it is part of an associates, bachelors, or masters program). Second, what surprised me is that Eco-Tourism made the cut (The five programs are listed below). I keep reading about how the travel industry is the next big sector that is just starting to work on its environmental impact.
Here are the five most readily available green training programs:
Renewable Energy Training 
Cost Range: $2,000-$25,000
LEED Certification 
Cost Range: $500-$1,000 per course, $250 for the exam
Cost Range: $200-$10,000
Wind Programs 
Cost Range: $2,500-$25,000
Energy Auditors
