NEW Generation Power Skills Training Development Initiative
AbstractThe NEW Generation Power Skills Development Initiative develops and enhances regional training programs for the emerging Smart Grid workforce by incorporating industry identified “core skills,” and utilizing multiple delivery methods to accommodate the diverse needs of the learners (e.g., incumbent workers, unemployed, traditional students). The initiative maximizes the resources and expertise of the four partner colleges to integrate a standardized set of core competencies into Smart Grid related programming either through new courses and/or modification to existing curricula.
