Resource: Video: Incorporating Renewable Energy Skills into Existing Technical Programs

In building the solar workforce, is it better to educate and train solar specialists or integrate solar knowledge and add-on skills to existing curricula? That’s the question Andrew McMahan, Energy Sector Director at Central Carolina Community College, addressed, based on his experience as the North Carolina Community College System’s lead college for its Code Green Super Curriculum Improvement Project (CIP). In this webinar, Andy talked about the Code Green Super CIP, a North Carolina statewide initiative which has been developing improvements in curriculum and continuing education green programs in five sectors: energy, transportation, engineering technology, environment and building. The curricula integrates renewable energy training and workforce development into existing vocational programs at all 58 community colleges across North Carolina.
