Code Green Super Curriculum Improvement Project (CIP) 

The Code Green Super CIP resulted in the redesign of curriculum program standards for five sector areas including Building, Energy, Engineering, Environment, and Transportation technologies based on a national career and technical education (CTE) standardized curriculum model that is designed to support and promote articulation.  Similar CTE program majors are grouped together under program standards that utilize a common technical core.  (See crosswalk below for assistance in locating programs.)

In addition, the CIP resulted in the revision, archive or adoption of approximately 360 courses.  Competencies related to emerging technologies, renewable sources of energy and reduced consumption of energy were incorporated.  Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs) were added to program core courses to aid articulation between continuing education and curriculum courses. 

The Curriculum Review Committee approved the Code Green Super CIP courses on May 29, 2012 (CC12-017).  The State Board of Community Colleges approved the thirty-two Code Green Super CIP curriculum standards listed below on August 16, 2012 (CC12-024).    

Colleges may begin utilizing the Code Green Super CIP courses and curriculum standards as early as fall of 2013, but must have implemented the revisions by no later than one year after the effective term (fall of 2014).
