Narrative

Skills required to service HEV and alternative fueled vehicles extend well beyond a normal automotive technician’s skill set. High voltage electric motors, batteries, generators, high voltage inverters, and convertors are a partial list of components not found on a typical vehicle that are found on every hybrid or electric vehicle. The skills required to effectively diagnose and service these vehicles involve increased depth of understanding of high voltage circuits, power generation, power storage devices, voltage and current inversion. Additionally, servicing these vehicles requires training regarding specialized safety precautions, use of specialized high voltage test equipment, and highly specialized diagnostic skills.
The increasing demand for specialized HEV service technicians, current lack of local training, and shortage of qualified personnel, will make completers of this program very employable.
The highly technical nature and danger associated with servicing these vehicles, specialized training required, and increased demand should result in above average earnings potential in this field.

Narrative

For enrollment projections, the 2014-2015 numbers from Launchboard were used. A 2% growth in enrollments was used as the calculation base.
For 4th Quarter Employment projections 2013-2014 was used in Launchboard because not data existed for 2014-2015.

This proposal will increase enrollments at College of the Redwoods by attracting new students with cutting edge technologies and hands-on experience with the high-tech surveying drone. This will increase enrollments 2% the first year, and then 5% each year after that.

Additionally, this proposal will add skills to the student’s current skillset and will make them more competitive in the job market and in obtaining a job. This program will increase the percentage of students that get hired within 4 quarters of leaving College of the Redwoods. This metric will be measured by a 2% increase in employment rates every year.

project will not affect enrollments in spring of 2017 so the '16-'17 enrollment projection is flat when compared to '14-'15 Launchboard number. A 2% growth in this specific TOPS code from 2014-15 enrollments was projected for '2017-2018 and 2081-2019.

CIS faculty anticipate that this project will attract:
1) professionals that want to add new skills to their resume.
2) past students that want to come back and gain security skills.
3) students already in the CIS Networking program will be enticed to stay and take another course to further build their knowledge and skills. These same students will be enticed by the Certificate of Recognition award.
Labor market data indicates a high demand for IT Security professionals. By providing CR, CIS students with contemporary IT Security training using industry standard equipment students will be prepared for employment in this fast-growing, high-demand field.
This project will allow faculty to participate in professional development activities that help them attain current, in-depth knowledge in the IT Security field. With this knowledge, CIS faculty will be able to create and deliver IT Security curriculum that offer students instruction in the skill sets demanded by employers of IT Security professionals, and commonly found in the IT industry.

The 2014-2015 lauchboard enrollment data was used as the baseline for 2016-2017 as the project has not yet occurred to have a chance to increase enrollments. For the projections, a 2% growth in Digital Media enrollments was calculated.
The College of the Redwoods Digital Media program needs to be updated to address the shifting landscape of the global as well as local digital media industry. We have identified two major areas for changes to achieve this goal; App Design and Audio Engineering for TV/Radio.
The App component of the project will increase enrollments by attracting students eager to learn how to become part of the growing App market and lead to increased completion rates.
App design and development not only fits with the current Digital Media offerings but will also allow for integration with classes currently offered in our Business and Computer Information Systems programs.
The Audio Engineering for TV and Radio component will attract students interested in employment in the field of study for Digital Media graduates

Part 1: Computer Replacement – Important to improve performance in enrollment and completions. For our students to meet their career expectations, for our local employers to be able to select employment candidates that are most prepared, and for our faculty to be able to add courses and modernize existing courses, it is important that our students are learning on hardware and software that is state-of-the-art.
Part 2: Improve 3D printing capacity - Important to improve performance in enrollment and completions. It is critical that CR’s curriculum keep pace with contemporary industry by making 3D printing technology available to students and developing curriculum to provide students with adequate hands-on experiences.
Part 3: Add online option for DT23/ENGR23 Engineering Graphics – Important for enrollment growth. Because the course serves so many disciplines and sites, the scheduling of the face-to-face course to meet the needs of those students is difficult.

Narrative

The purpose of the additional course will be to better prepare students for the academic rigors of the paramedic program. The paramedic program at College of the Redwoods draws students from 6 surrounding counties. Many applicants to the program have only recently completed the emergency medical technician course and have no practical understanding of the paramedic program. The proposed course would be offered through distance learning to better serve students in a wide geographic area. It would promote continued enrollment between the EMT, course which is offered each semester, and the paramedic program that starts in the fall. It would increase overall student enrollment in EMS programs, and it would increase student retention in the paramedic program. The paramedic program is nationally accredited and meets all accrediting standards with the exception of retention. The 3 year average retention standard is 70% and the program currently falls short of that. It is anticipated that students who successfully compete the proposed course will be better equipped academically for the paramedic program and will ultimately be more successful in it.
