Identifying Common Competencies for Energy-Related Occupations

The Allegheny Conference on Community Development commissioned an occupational analysis of energy-related jobs in a ten-county region of southwestern Pennsylvania.  The resulting study identified 14 energy-related target jobs in that region and determined the critical competencies required for success in those occupations.   The researchers recommended that educators place more emphasis on occupational competencies and skills that are required in multiple industry sectors, and that industry take the lead in proactively creating and supporting partnerships with and among regional secondary, technical and community colleges to ensure effective curricula and learning tracks for each of the target jobs.  In addition to this initiative, the organization's ShaleNET Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training grant enabled them to develop and implement industry-informed, stackable certificate and associate degree programs to address the rapid growth of the Marcellus shale industry in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia and Texas.  To read the full case summary click here:  http://www.careeronestop.org/competencymodel/Info_documents/
