Trane, NC3 and CTE A Synergistic Partnership Between Industry and Education Gregory J. Josefchuk – Strategic Programs Leader; Trane

2 Agenda Introduction to Trane HVAC – A Growth Industry
Addressing the Needs for the Workforce of Tomorrow Transforming CTE – A Model for Collaboration Trane’s Partnership with NC3 Trusted Advisor to CTE Center’s of Excellence (CoE) Questions

3 The Trane brand is about building life.
Our careful attention to the needs of the building can improve the life of equipment, controls and systems. Meeting the needs of the building promotes environments that impact the lives within the building and fosters productivity and profitability. We improve the life of your building and the lives within your building. We see something beyond the physical structure. We see the environments in which people work, play, learn, heal and create.

4 Building Life Through Commitment
We are committed to energy efficiency and sustainability, with more than 700+ LEED-accredited professionals. Since 2008, Trane has given out nearly 70 Energy Efficiency Leader Awards to our customers around the world. Customers trust Trane to give loyalty, passion and dedication to their mission

5 Building Life Through Knowledge
Trane’s total number of U.S. patents to date is over 900. Our number of individual inventors is 555. Then…the original class Trane’s Patent Wall in La Crosse, Wisconsin Graduate Training Program (GTP) Began in 1925 2 classes annually for most years ~ 8,700 participants have gone through the GTP, including sales and marketing engineers from more than 50 countries worldwide Now…the current class A legacy of excellence, knowledge and true expertise

8 The HVAC Industry – Poised for Growth

9 Industry Statistics In 2010 heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration mechanics and installers held about 267,800 jobs with about 55% working for plumbing, heating and air-conditioning contractors. The rest were employed in a variety of industries...refrigeration and air-conditioning service and repair shops, schools...government, hospitals, office buildings, etc. About 16 percent of these workers were self-employed. (Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Edition, Job Outlook)

10 The HVAC Industry Employs over 1.2 Million Workers
Industry Statistics ASHRAE estimates there are 51,000 engineering jobs related to HVACR engineering or similar employment in the US and Canada. AHRI and HRAI estimates approximately 142,000 individuals are employed in the manufacturing segment of the HVACR industry in the US and Canada. HARDI reports that an estimated 60,000 people are employed in the HVACR wholesale distribution segment of the industry in Canada and the US. The HVAC Industry Employs over 1.2 Million Workers

11 Industry Forecast The employment need of heating, air-conditioning and refrigeration mechanics and installers is projected to increase 34 percent during the decade, much faster than the average for all [non HVACR] occupations. As the population and stock of buildings grows, so does the demand for residential, commercial and industrial climate control systems. (Department of Labor, Bureau of Labor Statistics, Edition, Job Outlook) 86,000 new jobs are needed by 2018 according to the HVACR Workforce Development Foundation Residential HVACR systems generally need replacement after 10 to 15 years; the large number of homes built in recent years will enter the replacement time frame by 2018.

12 Problem-solving time…

13 Current State Source – Industry Workforce Needs Council (IWNC)

14 Current State Pathways to Prosperity*:
In 1973, 32% of the jobs created in the United States did not require a high school degree; by 2007, that percentage was 11%. From 2000 to 2010, the employment to population ratio for 18- to 19-year-olds dropped from 51.4% to 28.5%. For Americans aged 20 to 24, the drop was from 74.2% to 62.2% - Translation: If you’re a young person and don’t possess the right skills, it is very difficult to find gainful employment! Its not that the level of skills in students dropped, it’s the level of skills required by employers have increased * Source: Harvard Graduate School of Education (2011)

15 Here’s what we’re facing…
“About 10 million manufacturing jobs cannot be filled worldwide because of a shortage of skilled workers, according to a report released by the World Economic Forum and Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Ltd.” (4/24/12 article – Chicago Tribune) “…today, and for every day for the next 19 years, 10,000 baby boomers will reach age 65. The aging of this huge cohort of Americans (26% of the total U.S. population are Baby Boomers) will dramatically change the composition of the country”. (Pew Research Center) Skilled workforce than honed their skills on the job are retiring.. Every day 10K people are reaching 65 and while some stay in the workforce longer, others leave earlier…. So we are losing people and don’t have a back up plan where employers are looking for people to step in and be productive on day 1 .

16 ACT Skills Gaps report…
Significant foundational skills gaps exist for United States workers and job seekers tested with WorkKeys® skills assessments, possessing both middle and high levels of education, for jobs that require a similar level of education. For manufacturing, healthcare, construction and energy-related target occupations requiring a middle or high level of education, the majority of U.S. WorkKeys examinees are not able to demonstrate the required skill level for locating information. This skill involves the ability to locate, synthesize, and use information from workplace graphics such as charts, graphs, tables, forms, flowcharts, diagrams, floor plans, maps and instrument gauges.

17 Who should solve these issues?
Government Education Industry

18 A Model for Success “Effective, high-quality CTE programs are aligned not only with college- and career-readiness standards, but also with the needs of employers, industry, and labor. They provide students with a curriculum based on integrated academic and technical content and strong employability skills.” “The students participating in effective CTE programs graduate with industry certifications or licenses and postsecondary certificates or degrees that employers use to make hiring and promotion decisions. These students are positioned to become the country’s next leaders and entrepreneurs.” U.S. Department of Education, Office of Vocational and Adult Education, Investing in America’s Future: A Blueprint for Transforming Career and Technical Education, Washington, D.C., 2012.
