Harrington agrees: "The Get Into Energy program arid partnership between CEWD and EMCC is a perfect model or how building a talent pipeline for all industry clusters should work.
Harrington pointed out that CEWD uses Kuder[R] Journey, the postsecondary and adult version of Kuder's online education and career planning system, for its "Get Into Energy Career Pathways fir Low Income Young Adults" initiative.
It was through APS's involvement with the CEWD that we were brought into the mix," says Goodman.
37 million grant to CEWD from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
These eight pilot programs, made possible by the Gates Foundation grant, will provide the next step toward creating industry-recognized credentials that will allow energy consortia in other states to develop the necessary structure for building a stronger and better-prepared energy workforce," said CEWD President Mary Miller.
