Cool Pathways provides a road map to help navigate and prepare students for careers in the energy industry.
The Georgia Department of Education uses the National Career Cluster Model which allows students to choose an area of career interest in high school. All Georgia high school students take classes tailored to their Cluster. The focus is to show students the relevance of what they're learning in the classroom to the careers they are thinking about pursuing, whether they want to attend a two-year college, a four-year university or go straight into the world of work. Each general career area is called a Cluster and within each Cluster there are multiple specific Career Pathways.
There are two Pathways in the Energy Cluster that can help prepare students for careers related to the generation, transmission and distribution of various types of energy along with the engineering design, construction, maintenance and repair of these systems. The industry prefers the Energy and Power: Generation, Transmission, and Distribution Pathway.
