DIR and its Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) are working in partnership with the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC), investor-owned utility companies and the California Workforce Investment Board (CWIB). The goal of this project is to help highly skilled workers find well-paying employment in the green economy by providing them with specialized job training.

Research and education staff from the University of California, Berkeley, who conducted a needs assessment of education and training needs in the green economy are serving as consultants on this project.
