Expanding Apprenticeship & Training to Enable Smart Cities with Enhanced Cyber Security

Expanding Apprenticeship & Training to Enable Smart Cities with Enhanced Cyber Security
Abstract: 

In June 2017, the President issued Executive Order 13801 on Expanding Apprenticeship in America, which establishes an expansive vision for increasing the number of apprentices in the nation to an unprecedented level across all industries.  The overarching goals of this Apprenticeship: Closing the Skills Gap grant program are threefold:

  1. Accelerate the expansion of apprenticeships to new industry sectors and occupations, such as cyber security and those involving artificial intelligence;
  2. Promote the large-scale expansion of apprenticeships across the nation to a range of employers, including small- and medium-sized employers; and
  3. Increase apprenticeship opportunities for all Americans.

In February 2020, the US Department of Labor awarded $5M+ to CLTC and our training partners to support the expansion of electrical training programs across California and Nevada.  This four-year funding will be used to develop a Smart Cities apprenticeship tract that includes advanced electrical training on:

  • Cyber-secure building wiring and switching techniques
  • Automated demand management and demand response
  • Building automation and networking infrastructure
