W.Va. developing tech classes for energy industry

Associated Press Published: October 5, 2012

West Virginia is among 12 states selected by the Southern Regional Education Board to tackle the "Preparation for Tomorrow" curriculum for career technical centers. Each state must develop four standards-based career technical courses in high-demand, skill and wage career areas unique to its economic needs and opportunities. The course specifics will then be shared among the states.

West Virginia picked the energy and power curriculum for secondary schools to use in preparing high school students for potential careers in those fields. The courses will then be available at career technical centers statewide.

The statement said among the courses being developed by other states are aerospace engineering, construction design, food and nutritional sciences, health careers and renewable energy.
