STATE ENERGY SECTOR PARTNERSHIP (SESP) AND TRAINING GRANTS
Description: Three energy centers of excellence, one funded by a current U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) grant and two funded by U.S. Department of Energy American and Recovery Act (ARRA) funds, will develop and deploy materials and programs which will be used by the 22 two-year colleges and the 7 apprenticeship programs in Arkansas to support the training of workers for the targeted energy sectors. These programs will incorporate national competency standards and input from the industrial advisory committees that are part of each regional team into training programs and materials. The Arkansas Association of Two-Year Colleges and the Arkansas Apprentice Coalition will coordinate training of workers statewide, through 9 regional partnerships. These 9 regions encompass all 75 counties and 10 WIBs in Arkansas.
