Clean Energy Career Pathways Catalog
Over 300 job descriptions for technical and specialty jobs in clean energy
Created for job-seekers, hiring managers, the existing workforce, and the public, ACP’s Clean Energy Career Pathways Catalog presents over 300 job descriptions for technical and specialty jobs within the clean energy industry.
This catalog shows the upward mobility and opportunities that exist within the industry, alongside highlighting the skills and requirements necessary to work in these positions. The aim is to provide a better understanding of how existing transferrable skills could be applied to clean energy jobs or what a career progression within the workforce could look like.
This massive effort is meant to provide workers in other energy industries, veterans, and workers in underrepresented communities a better idea of the jobs available in clean energy, as well as support the industry with recruiting and retention.
If you have questions about the catalog, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Measuring the skills needed for effective work as a clean energy technician
Micro Credentials represent concise, logical skills that – when combined – form the larger skillsets necessary to successfully work in certain jobs on clean energy sites. An individual can be tested against these skills to demonstrate mastery of the skill and, in so doing, get on a path to a promotion.
How can I use Micro Credentials?
Employers can use the Micro Credentials to test and track training effectiveness, technician progression, and fit for various tasks and projects. This can help ensure work is performed safely and competently. The addition of more and targeted Micro Credentials can also be used to reward additional capabilities and skillsets.
Technicians can use the Micro Credentials to demonstrate their competence in particular skills. Using these credentials as reference, the capabilities and the breadth of technician skills can be measured and quantified, which can support career progression.
The ACP Micro Credentials are designed to aid the employer to comply with 29 CFR 1910.269(a)(2)(viii) and 29 CFR 1910.9 (b). These two standards require both training and demonstrated proficiency in the work practices they are expected to perform.
ACP’s Training and Education Working Group has prepared this series of micro credentials. If you have questions about this ACP program, or recommendations for additional micro credentials, please reach out via email@example.com.
