We help ensure that college curriculum is designed by the industry for the industry, and delivered by education partners who know how to teach the required skills.

With more than 35 years of experience working closely with higher education and workforce systems on adult learning issues, CAEL knows how they work—and we can make them work for you.
Build the Competencies You Need with Industry-Specific Education
CAEL has helped industries develop programs and offer them directly to employees and the general public via specialized websites:
* www.epceonline.org—Offers online energy industry STEM education including certificates, associate’s degrees, and bachelor’s degrees
* www.epceonline.org/programs/smartgrid/—Provides information about new industry-driven smart grid education
* www.nactel.org—Offers online telecommunications industry STEM education including certificates, associate’s degrees, and bachelor’s degrees
Reduce Recruitment and Retention Costs for Entry-Level Positions
Attract qualified employees before they graduate from high school. CAEL makes high school students aware of available jobs and prepares them to enter a particular industry through customized online education offered at their schools. Often, these programs fill gaps in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education at the high school.
