4 Executive Summary In the fall of 2012, the Centers of Excellence (COE) and the Advanced Transportation Technology & Energy Centers (ATTE), initiatives of the CCCCO Economic and Workforce Development program, working closely with the CCCCO and Energy Commission, conducted a survey of community colleges to better understand the variety of programs and course offerings related to vehicle repair and maintenance and alternative fuel production. California community colleges were asked to provide detailed information on their existing course and program offerings related to vehicle transportation, electrical technologies and fuel production in an effort to map the integration of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies into curriculum as well as to assess the capacity of the community college system to provide training in these areas. Data was analyzed and organized into three topic areas: alternative fuel/electric vehicle repair and maintenance; heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance; and alternative fuel production and handling. Within each topic area, the COE assessed program capacity, occupational targets, course concentrations, program challenges, partnership potential, professional development and efforts to stay current. Key findings for each area include: Alternative fuel/electric vehicle repair and maintenance programs 40 community colleges in California offer curriculum or programs related to alternative fuel vehicle repair and maintenance The majority of colleges (64%) characterized their program as oversubscribed or at the maximum student enrollment levels These programs prepare students primarily for automotive master mechanics and automotive specialty technician careers Common course topics include hybrid vehicle maintenance and development, alternative and renewable fuel properties, and electric vehicle maintenance One of the most significant challenges for the alternative fuel vehicle repair and maintenance programs is finding resources for new training equipment or soliciting donations of equipment The most common partnership reported involve articulation or other agreements with K-12 institutions 82% of staff are provided access to training in alternative fuel or electric vehicle repair and maintenance to better equip existing staff with the latest in technical expertise and knowledge 89% plan to add an alternative fuel and /or alternative fuel vehicle content in to existing program curricula. Heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance programs 21 community colleges in California offer curriculum or programs related to heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance The majority of colleges (67%) characterized their program as oversubscribed or at the maximum student enrollment levels These programs prepare students primarily for automotive master mechanics and automotive specialty technician careers Common course topics include hybrid vehicle maintenance and development, alternative and renewable fuel properties, natural gas engine and vehicle maintenance and non-petroleum derived diesel fuel (gas-to-liquids and biodiesel) One of the most significant challenges for the heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance programs is finding resources for new training equipment or soliciting donations of equipment The most common partnership reported involve articulation or other agreements with K-12 institutions California Community Colleges Chancellor s Office 4

5 89% of staff are provided access to training in heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance to better equip existing staff with the latest in technical expertise and knowledge 67% plan to add an alternative fuel and /or alternative fuel vehicle content in to existing program curricula. Alternative fuel production and handling programs 11 community colleges in California offer curriculum or programs related to alternative fuel production and handling programs The majority of colleges (78%) characterized their program as oversubscribed or at the maximum student enrollment levels These programs prepare students primarily for automotive master mechanics and automotive specialty technician careers Common course topics include hybrid vehicle maintenance and development, alternative and renewable fuel properties, natural gas engine and vehicle maintenance and fuel efficiency technologies and measures for alternative fuel One of the most significant challenges for the alternative fuel production and handling programs is finding resources for new training equipment or soliciting donations of equipment The most common partnership reported involve articulation or other agreements with K-12 institutions 86% of staff are provided access to training in alternative fuel production and handling to better equip existing staff with the latest in technical expertise and knowledge 86% plan to add an alternative fuel and /or alternative fuel vehicle content in to existing program curricula. The responses to this internal assessment confirm that community colleges are making significant changes to traditional automotive and electrical programs in an effort to prepare a workforce to serve next generation cars, trucks and fuel production methods. To ensure the most efficient use of resources, colleges should consider leveraging existing course curriculum from more advanced programs for colleges just beginning to incorporate these topics, and/or to support developing and providing instructor training events that cater to the largest interest areas or largest number of colleges.

6 Introduction Community college education and training serves many purposes. In addition to preparing students for a specific occupation or to transfer to a four-year university, career technical education courses, help incumbent workers keep up-to-date on technologies and skills affecting their current or future employment whether through for-credit, semester-based classes or more flexible contract education opportunities. Since 2009, the California Community Colleges Chancellor s Office (CCCCO), in partnership with the California Energy Commission (Energy Commission), have collaborated on a multi-year, multi-phase workforce research, curriculum and professional development project focusing on advanced transportation technologies. In the fall of 2012, the Centers of Excellence (COE) and the Advanced Transportation Technology & Energy Centers (ATTE), initiatives of the CCCCO Economic and Workforce Development program, working closely with the CCCCO and Energy Commission, conducted a survey of community colleges to better understand the variety of programs and course offerings related to vehicle repair and maintenance (including both automotive and heavy duty vehicles) and alternative fuel production (including electrical charging stations). Specifically, the survey was designed to gather information from community colleges for the purposes of: Clarifying which of the 112 California community colleges currently provide vehicle and electrical education and training related to alternative fuel vehicle production and vehicle technology as well as those who wish to develop similar offerings; Documenting alternative fuel vehicle program concentrations, course topics, student capacity and staffing; Understanding program challenges, goals and objectives; and Identifying potential areas for statewide collaboration, such as common challenges, similar curriculum need and/or faculty development topics. Survey Methodology In the fall of 2012, California community colleges were asked to provide detailed information on their existing course and program offerings related to vehicle transportation, electrical technologies and fuel production in an effort to map the integration of alternative fuels and advanced vehicle technologies into curriculum as well as to assess the capacity of the community college system to provide training in these areas. The locations of existing programs are shown in the map on the next page. In the section to follow, the information gathered from colleges is organized by program concentration: alternative fuel/electric vehicle repair and maintenance; heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance; and alternative fuel production and handling (includes biofuel or natural gas, and electric charging stations). Information on contract education offerings is included where appropriate. California Community Colleges Chancellor s Office 6

8 Survey of Colleges Throughout this report, the data gathered from colleges in three separate survey tools (vehicle, electrical and contract education) is shown in aggregate form, unless otherwise noted, and has been reorganized under three topic areas: alternative fuel/electric vehicle repair and maintenance; heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance; and alternative fuel production and handling (includes biofuel or natural gas, and electric charging stations). Survey Participation Survey participation was encouraged through multiple solicitations notices were sent to faculty and administration identified via campus websites as well as a general notice sent to members of the seven community college regional consortia. 1 The table below breaks down participation by survey. Survey Tool # of responses expected # of college responses % college responses # entered postsurvey period 2 Automotive % 18 Electrical % 23 Contract Education 5 NA 27 24% NA Program Concentrations Respondents to the survey self-selected concentrations; that is, the number of, and all information about, programs in each topic area comes directly from the survey responses ( # of college responses in the table above) and is not extrapolated to represent the universe of existing programs ( # of responses expected ). A breakdown of responses by concentration is shown in the table below. Response group Heavy Duty Alt Fuel Repair Repair & Maint. & Maint. Alt Fuel Prod. & Handling colleges with for-credit programs (automotive and/or electric) confirming for-credit offerings, related to topic interested in developing for-credit offerings colleges with contract education units NA NA NA - confirming related contract education offerings interested in developing contract education offerings Data Caution For the majority of questions included in all three survey tools, responses were not required; consequently, in many cases, participants did skip questions or sections. For that reason, where possible, the n or number of responses for each data point is included. 1 The seven regional consortia facilitate regular regional meetings of Chancellor s office staff, occupational deans, faculty, and economic development staff of the 112 member colleges for purposes of sharing information, providing training, and guidance on career technical education programs. 2 Using the CCCCO Curriculum Inventory ( an approximate list of colleges offering vehicle and electrical training was developed. At the conclusion of the survey period, colleges from the Curriculum Inventory list that had not responded to the survey were evaluated further and, if certain criteria were met, a survey response was generated on their behalf (with very minimal information). A list of these colleges is available in Appendix A. 3 Target participation based on the number of automotive programs approved under the CCC Taxonomy of Programs codes (Heavy Equipment Maintenance), (Heavy Equipment Operation), (Automotive Technology), and (Automotive Collision Repair). One college (Taft College) suspended a program recently due to budget constraints. 4 Target participation based on the number of electrical programs approved under the CCC Taxonomy of Programs code The research team was unable to locate any data that approximates how many of the 112 colleges statewide currently support a contract education function. As such, no target participation goal could be developed and % of response represents share of all colleges (27 of 112). California Community Colleges Chancellor s Office 8

9 Survey Sections and Terms (in order of appearance) Program Capacity In the last few years, community colleges across the state have seen a surge in demand for classes as recently unemployed workers return to campus for retraining or to pursue other higher education goals. Due to the demand for seats in classes coupled with declines in state funding, programs are often oversubscribed that is, more students than seats in class. Colleges were asked to approximate the number of students they could potentially train using their current resources. They selected one of six capacity measurements. Occupational Targets Thirteen occupations were selected as potential training targets. Colleges were asked to select those that they felt their programs prepared students to perform. Electrical occupations were only listed in the electrical survey (responses included in alternative fuel production and handling) and were not an option to colleges completing the heavy duty vehicle or alternative fuel/electric vehicle repair and maintenance surveys. The occupations are sorted by highest frequency of responses. Course Concentrations The 13 course topics respondents selected from ranged from hybrid vehicle maintenance to forest management to off-road applications using non-petroleum derived fuel. In the sections following, these responses are shown by in alphabetical order and by concentration. 6 Program Challenges Career technical education programs face many unique challenges in preparing students for the workplace. To better understand the severity of these challenges across programs statewide, the survey asked respondents to rate the level of challenge each presents. Partnerships Partnerships of varying kinds are recognized as vital components to a successful career technical education program. From employer advisory boards to recruitment of students from K-12 or local workforce partners to internship/externship opportunities and job placement activities, the level of partnership development is a good indicator of community support and need for a program. To understand the breadth of partnerships supporting automotive-related programs statewide, the survey asked respondents to detail those they had developed. Professional Development Career technical education programs must keep pace with industry innovation; to do this, program administrators often rely on professional development for faculty and other staff whether through industry-developed training, industry conferences, education-developed training (train-the-trainer), or education conferences, among others. Colleges were asked how frequently the program s faculty (both full- and part-time) participates in professional development activities. Looking Forward The rapid advancement of vehicle technologies places added pressure on community college programs to keep up. As they look forward, the survey asked respondents to identify what changes they plan to make in the future to their program s operation, goals and objectives. Recommendations At the conclusion of each section, recommendations are included to highlight where curriculum, faculty, partnership or other development may be appropriate per the survey data. 6 Electrical program respondents selected from five of the 13 topics (those most related to electric vehicles).

10 Alternative Fuel Vehicle: Repair and Maintenance Programs Of the 70 colleges with automotive programs in California, 40 were identified as having curriculum or programs related to alternative fuel vehicle repair and maintenance. Of these 40, ten colleges did not respond to the survey and partial responses were generated on their behalf. 7 An additional 15 colleges with automotive programs indicated an interest in expanding their program to include alternative fuel vehicle training. Contract education related to repair and maintenance of alternative fuel vehicles is also represented. Alternative Fuel Vehicle Repair & Maintenance 21% Alternative fuel vehicle programs (40) 8 Offer alternative fuel vehicle training 22% 57% Program Capacity Colleges were asked about the number of seats or capacity of their program to train students. In the pie chart on the right, the distribution of responses by size category is shown (n=28). The majority of automotive programs with an alternative fuel vehicle concentration can accommodate more than 90 students. These responses were then extrapolated to approximate a minimum (low) to maximum (high) student capacity: Low High 2,350 seats 2,610 seats Considering expanding into alternative fuel vehicle area (15) All other automotive programs (15) Considering expanding into 2 alternative fuel vehicle area Contract Education 120+ seats, 14, 50% Fewer than 15 seats, 1, 4% seats, 2, 7% seats, 3, 11% seats, 2, 7% seats, 4, 14% In regard to existing staffing levels, surveyed programs represent about 207 community college faculty (80 full-time instructors and 127 part-time instructors), with a median of two full-time and four part-time instructors. When asked to describe the current student enrollment levels, a majority (64% or 18 programs) characterized their program as oversubscribed, 21% responded that they were neither over- nor undersubscribed (six programs), while 14% responded undersubscribed (four programs).

Finding resources for new training equipment or soliciting donations of equipment was the most extreme challenge for the fuel production and handling programs in the survey (55% reported extreme or moderate challenge), followed by the challenge finding instructors with practical experience/technical expertise (55% reported extreme or moderate challenge). Alternative Fuel Production Programs: Challenges Extreme Challenge Moderate Challenge Somewhat of a Challenge Not a Challenge Equipment 22% 33% 22% 22% Staffing 11% 44% 22% 22% Facilities 11% 33% 22% 33% Employer engagement 11% 33% 22% 33% Curriculum 33% 44% 22% Faculty development 22% 44% 33% 0% 20% 40% 60% 80% 100% % of Programs that Responded (n=28) Partnerships In the fuel production and handling programs, the largest number of partnerships involve articulation or other agreements with K-12 partners in the community (7 of 7 programs), followed by local government, student support, and government/private fleets. Professional Development To better equip existing staff with the latest in technical expertise and knowledge, 86% of staff are offered training in alternative fuel production and handling (biofuel or natural gas) while 78% are provided with the opportunity to train on alternative fuel or electric vehicle repair and maintenance, and 71% are heavy duty vehicle repair and maintenance training.

23 Looking Forward As alternative fuel production and handling programs look forward, the survey asked respondents to identify what types of changes they plan to make in the near future. All options rated equally highly with the seven respondents to this question. Strategy (% of yes responses) Alternative fuel production and handling (n=7) Add alternative fuel and/or alternative fuel vehicle degrees and/or certificates. 86% Add alternative fuel and/or alternative fuel vehicle content in our existing program curricula. 86% New equipment/technology to support our alternative fuel and/or alternative fuel vehicle program/course offerings. 86% Revise program 86% Pursue professional development 86% Electrical programs were given slightly different options. Only one respondent in four completed this question. Strategy (% of yes responses) Electrical Program Responses (n=4) Expand our program to include electric vehicle charging station certificates. 25% Expand our program to include electric vehicle charging station content in our existing program curricula. 25% Pursue new equipment or computer technology purchases to support our electric vehicle charging station certificate/course offerings. 25% Recommendations The recommendations below highlight potential curriculum, professional and partnership development areas for fuel production and handling programs (including electric charging station installation and maintenance), based on the survey responses submitted. For existing traditional automotive programs that have indicated an interest in expanding their course or certificate/degree program into fuel production and handling or electric charging station installation and maintenance: Utilize resources of, and work with, the college s Regional Consortia for the purposes of assessing employer interest, expand partnership opportunities, and potentially pilot new training through contract education. developing and hosting Train the Trainer sessions for staff at these and other colleges appropriate for instruction of the following topics: (1) hybrid vehicle maintenance and development, (2) alternative and renewable fuel properties, (3) natural gas engine and vehicle maintenance, and (4) fuel efficiency technologies and measures for alternative fuel use. providing colleges with course curriculum on the topics in the previous bullet, for adaptation/curriculum approval at their respective colleges. For existing fuel production and handling programs: Utilize resources of, and work with, the college s Regional Consortia for the purposes of assessing employer interest, expand partnership opportunities, and potentially pilot new training through contract education.

25 Conclusion The responses to this internal assessment confirm that community colleges are making significant changes to traditional automotive and electrical programs in an effort to prepare a workforce to serve next generation cars, trucks and fuel production methods. This assessment revealed 86 of the 112 California community colleges are already instructing in at least some aspects of alternative fuel vehicle, heavy duty vehicle, and alternative fuel production/handling areas. Several more expressed a desire to expand offerings to include these topics. It is also clear that while there is tremendous enthusiasm for program development, resources are scarce. Additionally, in developing any new or expanded offerings, it is always recommended that developers consider and review local labor market data, such as employment projections and wages, before making any significant revisions to for-credit programs to better understand the workforce that is needed in their community. In this environment, it would be more efficient to combine efforts on a regional or statewide level, to consider testing sustainability of new instruction through the use of contract education, to encourage leveraging existing course curriculum from more advanced programs for colleges just beginning to incorporate these topics, and/or to support developing and providing instructor training events that cater to the largest interest areas or largest number of colleges. Recommendations As noted in the recommendations previously, potential curriculum, professional and partnership development areas for the three concentration groups of programs are evident, based on the survey responses submitted. Within the recommendations, as well as within the data sets, are overlaps in topics and potential training targets (such as faculty members). These included: Develop and host Train the Trainer sessions for staff appropriate for instruction of the following topics (in order of frequency): Introductory level (relatively new to program topics) o hybrid vehicle maintenance and development, o alternative and renewable fuel properties, o fuel efficiency technologies and measures for alternative fuel use o electric vehicle repair and maintenance o natural gas engine and vehicle maintenance, Intermediate level o non-petroleum derived diesel fuel (gas-to-liquids and biodiesel) o off-road applications operating on non-petroleum derived fuel (gas-to-liquids and biodiesel) o alternative fuel production and handling (biofuel and natural gas o liquid petroleum gas (LPG) vehicle assessment o non-petroleum derived diesel fuel (gas-to-liquids and biodiesel) Provide colleges with course curriculum on the topics in the previous bullet, for adaptation/ curriculum approval at their respective colleges. For those topics profiled above, provide subject matter expertise, networking opportunities, and/or workshop activities related to increasing partnership development in the following area: Student support programs: increase the number of relationships between college programs and student support (wrap-around) services as well as strengthening relationships between veteran training organizations, to improve program outcomes overall, such as course completion, degree/certificate attainment and job placement. Employer engagement: increase the number of relationships between college programs and employers. California Community Colleges Chancellor s Office 25
