IREC is at the American Association of Community College’s (AACC’s) annual Workforce Development Institute (WDI), January 28-31, 2015, Newport Beach, California.
IREC’s Jane Weissman participated in a day-long pre-conference workshop, Community Colleges: Educating for and Building a Clean Energy Economy, for workforce professionals with programs or an interest in clean technology and, more broadly, in environmental sustainability. Weissman’s mention of IREC’s work on the micro-credentialing concept led to much more discussion and interest with Community Colleges at a AACC/SEED workshop on January 28.
IREC’s credentialing team, also at the conference in booth #10, will be giving brief sessions on the new Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA). In addition, 15-minute exhibit hall discussions will be offered twice during session breaks.
