Forsyth Technical Community College is leading a consortium of 8 community colleges across the Piedmont Triad region as part of its Aligning the Workforce Education System for Manufacturing (AWESM) project. AWESM is made possible by the Strengthening Community Colleges grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor. Credential Engine has signed onto the effort to help create the necessary and transparent data infrastructure to strengthen the education and training market in the Forsyth region. Over the next four years, Credential Engine will work with the partner institutions to discover the greatest information needs, build appropriate data infrastructures, and publish credential data across the region. With transparent linked open data, Forsyth Tech and its partners will be able to better assess and develop pathways through education, training, and careers, including areas of emphasis such as computer integrated machining, welding, industrial systems technology, and mechatronics.
