The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, along with its partners, has developed a comprehensive approach to addressing the workforce development needs of the power sector. Funded through a Department of Energy grant the partners are recruiting high school students into power careers, providing two-year and four-year college training, and developing laboratories and graduate curricula tailored to new power and energy technologies. Existing workforce training takes the form of diverse workshop and seminar offerings. The paper describes these programs, their results, and lessons learned from expanding outreach and curricula for power sector constituents.
