PSEJATC gets the national spotlight in video!

The PSEJATC recently worked with the Electrical Training Alliance (ETA) in the development of a video highlighting the Computer-Mediated Learning (CML) model. The video highlights the rich tech landscape of the Puget Sound area and the PSE JATC adoption of the CML model of training.

The CML model revolutionizes curriculum delivery by enabling apprentices to access course materials remotely before attending in-person classes. This approach optimizes the hands-on learning experiences in the training centers state-of-the-art labs. By allowing students to complete classroom work at home, the CML model ensures they remain on track and well-prepared, mitigating the risk of falling behind. The collaborative efforts of the National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW) have played a pivotal role in the successful implementation of the CML model, through their national training arm, the electrical training ALLIANCE (etA).

The results speak for themselves: instructors have observed a marked improvement in student comprehension and performance, with notable enhancements in test scores. By embracing the CML model, PSEJATC not only addresses the critical need for skilled labor but also sets a benchmark for innovative educational practices in the electrical industry.
