The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity is collecting input on the Clean Jobs Curriculum which will be used in two new workforce training programs.

The Clean Jobs Workforce Network Program Hubs and the Returning Residents Clean Jobs Training Program are aligned with requirements set under the Climate and Equitable Jobs Act.

The Clean Jobs Curriculum will create guidelines and benchmarks that will help CEJA training programs prepare Illinois’ workforce for jobs in the clean energy industry.

The Hubs – which will be located in 13 areas defined in state statute - will administer the curriculum and offer training and certifications to help Illinoisans secure clean energy jobs.

Interested parties can submit feedback through a survey or by email.
