Justin also shared a sample curriculum review process that CCEC and JCC partnered on. The sample he used was for a career path in Industrial Equipment Technology. It was identified that we need more of these jobs to meet the current demand. The purpose of the project was to identify a challenge or goal and develop a shared measurement system between JCC and the CCEC to gauge the effectiveness of the program. Ultimately, the goal is to examine feedback from local employers and continue to match curricula to the needs of local employers.
