Project data has not yet been submitted.
The California Smart Grid Workforce Development Network (CSGWDN) is supporting the development of California’s Smart Grid workforce by engaging electric utilities, California State University campuses, California community colleges, labor unions, and Smart Grid manufacturers in workforce training in advanced power system technology. The partners have identified the need to train 897 incumbent engineers, 521 new hire engineers, and 1,306 craft and technical workers over the next five years. CSGWDN is creating, executing, and evolving a statewide workforce development strategy through degree and certificate programs by connecting Smart Grid technology advances to workforce needs. Two webinars will be conducted to advance the professional development of professors and instructors at participating education locations. The program will be made available to the remaining 23-campus California State University system.
