AACC’s Sustainability Education and Economic Development (SEED) Center has three new resources:
- Webinar: Alternative Fuel Vehicles: New Technology, Refined Workforce Programs, November 30, 2011, 1:00 p.m. (ET). Learn about future workforce development opportunities in this industry and from two model colleges with cutting-edge hybrid vehicle training initiatives, including effective train-the-trainer efforts.
- Webinar: Community Colleges Leading Rural-Based Green Economy Initiatives, December 8, 2011, 2:00 p.m. (ET). Learn how the U.S. Department of Agriculture is supporting these efforts, how community colleges are preparing a qualified workforce to support these sectors, and how regional partnerships are leading to the job growth.
- SEED’s Resource Center has expanded to include two new sectors: transportation and fuels and sustainable agriculture, food and land. The Resource Center is a curated collection of information organized around seven green economy sectors. Resources are designed for community college educators and administrators to prepare students and workers for careers in the green economy. Developed and vetted by a technical advisory group of community colleges, nonprofits, and private industry leaders, these new collections include curricular materials, employment industry projections, information about certification, and innovative practice models.
