Green Initiatives Throughout Green-collar job training – Enhance, Expand, Develop, Sustain Green practices in facilities and center culture – Construction, Technology and Performance, Internal and External Outreach, Fleet Efficiency
Green-Collar Job Training Green Training Focus Areas Enhance and refocus center and National Training Contractor career technical training programs to incorporate green technologies training; Expand existing green career technical training programs; Develop and initiate new career technical training programs for emerging occupations in the green economy; and Sustain green programs and practices after the Recovery Act period Goal: Connect Job Corps’ youth to the green economy through career pathways Outcome: 10,000 green graduates over the ARRA period
Enhance, Expand, Sustain Job Corps Trains in 11 High-Growth Industries – Advanced Manufacturing – Automotive – Construction – Finance and Business * – Health Care * – Homeland Security – Hospitality – Information Technology * – Renewable Resources and Energy * – Retail Sales and Services – Transportation *
Developing New Training in Emerging Occupations Biomass Collection, Separation and Sorting Technician Deconstruction Laborer Electronic Health Records Specialist Environmental Sampling Technician IT Recycling Technician Recycling Technician Recycling Center Operator Renewable Energy Machinist (Geothermal, Wind, Hydro, Solar, Biomass) Renewable Energy Plant Technician (Geothermal, Wind, Hydro, Solar, Biomass) Solar PV and Thermal System Installer (Residential) Solar PV and Thermal System Installer (Commercial) Smart Grid Technician – Overhead Line Construction – Underground Residential Distribution Smart Meter Technician Water Service Maintenance Technician Weatherization Technician Green Jobs Fitting Job Corps’ Training Profile
What Makes a Job Green? These actions contribute to a job’s green factor: Protection of eco-systems and biodiversity (conservation, preservation, and restoration) Reduction of energy, materials, and water consumption through high-efficiency strategies De-carbonization of the economy (moving away from fossil fuels) Minimization or avoidance of the generation of all forms of waste and pollution
Greening Training: Framework Industry experts (Subject matter experts, leaders in training, National Training Contractors) Industry safety guidelines (OSHA, EPA) National credentialing bodies Curricula developers National and local employers Job Corps instructors Expert Input in Green Training Goal: Prepare students for employment and credentials with the appropriate content and levels of training.
