Cuyahoga Community College

Increasing Competitiveness of the Electric Power Sector through Responsive Workforce Training Strategies


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.
