Cuyahoga Community College and partner Cleveland Public Power is developing and
designing a curriculum to specifically build Smart Grid knowledge and fill job vacancies. The workforce training program includes classroom, lab, work-site and online
instruction. Cuyahoga will use Designing A Curriculum (DACUM), a process that
assesses job classifications, to provide in-depth analysis of occupational skills that will
lead to new and relevant curriculum design for Smart Grid. DACUM analysis and
curriculum will be shared with Owens Community College, Columbus State Community College, Washington State Community College, and Sinclair Community College
to aid in their workforce training programs. Cuyahoga will also disseminate a Green
Residential Building Training curriculum across Ohio.
