Northern Michigan University Project Description


U.S. Department of Energy


Northern Michigan University (NMU) is establishing a training center to provide training that includes both the knowledge and skills required for an entry level technician in the electrical power industry. NMU??s mock electrical substation will provide students with a hand-on laboratory, with actual equipment, enabling them to practice skills that are needed in the workplace. Lab size will be limited to an 8-12 student maximum. A program coordinator will stay abreast of current technology to make sure that the program includes all relevant technology in use and under development. The curriculum was developed by Northern Michigan University in consultation with industry partners in the LSCP consortium.
