Secondary and Postsecondary Educational Institutions

Educational institutions can become educational members two ways; both require the approval of a sponsoring CEWD member company. All educational members agree to share information on curriculum, structure, and results for individual programs.

If you are an educational institution, please contact your local CEWD company member: List of Energy Company Members.

A basic “Education Membership” requires an education institution to open a conversation with a member company about the possibility of establishing a workforce development pipeline partnership. With that basic introduction, a member company could provide an educational institution with access to CEWD resources until such time when a more formal National Energy Education Network (NEEN) relationship is established. Access to the NEEN database is not available to this level of participation.

Getting Started

As a NEEN member, an educational institution has full access to the new NEEN Educator Sponsorship system. This new system includes an easier program application process, better reporting capability, and more data available at your fingertips. You can learn more and apply as an educator from the EIF 2.0 page on After your membership has been approved and processed, you will have the capability to manage your relationship forms. Just sign in using your CEWD username and password and click on “Manage Accounts” in the top navigation bar.

Here is a list of the information you will need to successfully complete the program sponsorship form:

  • Educator name, address, key contact name/phone number/e-mail
  • Sponsor Utility Partner name and secondary key contact name/phone number/e-mail
  • Program name, workforce pipeline connection, description, delivery method, graduate type, program website URL
