"The objectives of the expanded program are not just limited to generating course content for online classes. The program is piloting a methodology for students to be able to accomplish technical hands-on activities remotely.
This means that students will not be required to travel to Eugene, Ore., for training. Instead, LCC is working with utilities to connect students to fieldwork mentors in their area (through the assistance of Northwest Water and Education Institute). The field work mentors are industry experts who will guide training activities specific to the student’s coursework. They will facilitate aspects such as access to tools, mechanical equipment, and/or tactile experiences. Additionally, they provide an invaluable direct student-to-industry connection that cultivates immersion into the energy industry along with potential employment opportunities."
