Rural Job Training Initiative


Abstract
The Rural Job Training Initiative (RJTI) is a companion project to the Hawaii Rural
Development Project (RDP) which was initiated in 1997 with a U.S. Department of Labor grant
to the University of Hawaii for the purpose of rural workforce and economic development on the
island of Lana’i. Since that time, Hawaii’s RDP has expanded these rural workforce programs to
deliver training services to residents of the islands of Hawaii, Kaua’i, Maui, Moloka’i and O’ahu.
The grant is administered through the University of Hawaii at Maui Community College, which
draws upon the existence and strength of its rural community colleges to provide education and
training to rural areas. Hawaii’s community colleges provide the infrastructure for education and
training on each of the islands.

The proposed projects respond to systemic needs. The creation of initiatives for rural job training
ties directly to needs for long-term, sustainable alternatives to Hawaii’s historical economic
dependency on tourism, agriculture and the military. The continuation of these connections
among trainees, jobs, employers, and training institutions relies on community colleges in or
serving rural communities. These colleges offer a continuing opportunity to build capacity in
rural Hawaii and are expected to play a major role in fulfilling the goals and objectives of this
project. To meet the leadership role required for various projects, these colleges must continue
to develop their capacity for new responsibilities as well.

The Hawaiian Islands are currently experiencing a shortage of skilled workers in health care,
education, high technology, construction, skilled workers, and case workers. Opportunities to
train workers for new and persistent position vacancies are being considered as part of this grant.
The Rural Job Training Initiative (RJTI) proposes training, recruitment and infrastructure
supplementation in key areas to alleviate workforce shortages.

Baccalaureate development at University of Hawaii, Maui Community College (MCC),
including expansion of distance education and streaming video programming will be addressed.
In addition, program related equipment, new curriculum development, new 4 year-degree
programs, Automotive Technology, Fashion Technology, Sustainable Technology, Nursing
Program upgrades and a Radiology Technician program may be included. Enrollment -
management needs will be considered as MCC’s infrastructure is fast being outgrown by the
exponential population growth taking place on the island of Maui. A learning center has been
established in Lahaina to meet the educational needs of Maui’s Westside population and this
grant may be used to provide necessary infrastructure for the facility.

Demand and shortage areas targeted by the Community College Infrastructure Program Support
component may include (but not be limited to) training in the following sectors: Continued
support of the Applied Business Information Technology (ABIT) program and other 4 year
degree offerings at MCC, Health Care including nursing training in various areas, Just-In-Time

                                              Page 5
Workforce needs training, Literacy and GED enhancement, Journey Worker and Apprenticeships
for skilled laborers, Youth Skills Training and Case Worker Training. Emphasis on increasing
college enrollment among unemployed and displaced workers will be a recurring theme
throughout this proposal. Various forms of alternative energy will be investigated and tested and
implemented in real world situations by students in the Sustainable Technologies program.

Diversifying the economy and providing incentives and high quality training to the existing
workforce to accommodate emerging or high demand industries is necessary for Hawaii to
develop alternatives to the visitor industry as an economic base in this remote state.

A partnership with Kure National College of Technology in Hiroshima, Japan has been
established. The project will create an internet-based program for training in language and
communication skills using voice over IP (VOIP). Students from both countries will gain
knowledge and communications skills. Hawaii is a business gateway to Japan and Asia. The
intended result of establishing this type of training is to create working educational relationships
that benefit both countries and to develop a workforce that is comfortable and effective in a
multi-national environment.

To help new students succeed in their college experience, a one-credit Student Life course will
be introduced at MCC to inform students upon entry of the array of services and resources
available to them.

Kaua’i Community College will provide specialized training in network hardware and software,
electronics, and supervisory and management skills to meet workforce demand from local
businesses and subcontractors serving the Pacific Missile Range Facility. Maui Community
College will continue 4 year degree program support in Applied Business and Information
Technology (ABIT) that will increase the number of skilled technical personnel and degreed
professionals in Maui County. The Machine, Welding, and Industrial Mechanics Technologies
Program at Hawaii Community College on the Big Island will help meet workforce demand from
the astronomy sector. Workforce demand in the health care sector will be addressed by
continuing to support the Hawaii Primary Care Association’s health center case worker training.

Distance learning through video streaming technology will be added to programs statewide.
During the 2004 school year, Hawaii students logged onto distance learning websites as
frequently as 700 times over an 8 week course. Skilled worker shortages in the construction
trades on Oahu will be mitigated by providing specialized training that will upgrade the skills of
union members and allow them to attain employment and decrease the need to import mainland
workers.

The projects proposed herein will provide comprehensive training programs to Hawaii residents
and increase the number of skilled workers in existing and emerging demand sectors.

                             Statewide Component
RJTI - Statewide Support Services
The Rural Job Training Initiative will continue to be managed and implemented by Rural
Development Project (RDP) staff located at Maui Community College.

RDP currently coordinates DOL supported programs throughout the state, including the islands
of Lanai, Maui, Molokai, Kauai, Oahu and the Big Island of Hawaii. RDP provides support for
six Island Directors and assists them with program design, development, implementation, grant
writing, quarterly reporting, participant data collection, procurement, training, personnel
administration, travel, payroll and miscellaneous support functions. The RDP Statewide
Director, Deputy Director, Statewide Program Support Associate, Contracts & Grants
Administrator, RDP Program Evaluator, Compliance Officer, Fiscal & Procurement Assistant,
and Personnel Assistant comprise this staff.

The RDP Statewide Staff currently oversee management of 246 programs on six Hawaiian
Islands. They support Island Directors on each island and maintain infrastructure development
and enhancement at the community colleges on all islands. Statewide staff have helped to create
and implement approximately 450 programs statewide since RDP inception in 1997.

Island directors are responsible for managing Island-specific programs which enhance
employment and training in their own region. To do this, they consult with local Workforce
Investment Boards (WIB) and Workforce Development Divisions (WDD) and research
workforce development programs which would best benefit their own island population. Island
Directors hire program managers, design data collection tools specific to each program, and
manage local support staff when required.




                                            Page 7
Progress Reports
The Statewide RDP office maintains an online “Huinet” (Hui means partnership) database
management information system. Island directors enter information about each participant and
project into the Huinet system including participant characteristics data, information on services
provided and outcome data. Island directors utilize Huinet information as well as supplementary
information to track and report progress quarterly on each project and project participants.

Reports are used to identify exemplary programs and “best practices” which can be shared
throughout the State. Huinet reports are used as an evaluation tool and also identify projects
which are not progressing in accordance with the established work plan. In those cases, the
reports will identify the reasons for the delay and also identify the corrective action that will be
taken and, if necessary, identify a revised timeline for achieving the project goals.

Research/Evaluation Component

Evaluator

The Evaluator for this grant, Diana Custer, has been hired, and is located at the RJTI/RDP
Statewide Office on the Maui Community College campus. She will be responsible for
overseeing the evaluation and for writing the evaluation report. A large team of RDP staff will
participate in the collection of data. The Statewide staff will be responsible for managing the task
of data collection for all RJTI programs.

Designing the Evaluation

Step 1: Identify Objectives and Measures
The work plan for each of the projects being funded under this grant identifies the specific
objectives for each project. Each work plan also identifies how the performance for each
objective will be measured


Step 2: Data to be Collected and Data Source and Step 3: When/Who Collects Data
A total of seven major projects are planned under this grant, and these projects are spread
throughout the six major Hawaiian Islands. The projects have similar evaluation requirements
regarding what information will be collected. Data collection tools to be used are: sign-in rosters
and mailing lists for outreach and recruitment activities, a standardized intake form for enrollees,
supplemental survey forms developed for projects on an as-needed basis, project evaluation
surveys from participants, and project evaluation narrative reports from Project Facilitators. In all
projects, RDP’s Management Information System (MIS), the Huinet, will be the tool used to
receive, store, review, and manipulate data.

A standardized Intake Form will be used for all projects. This form will be filled out by
participants at the onset of each project under the supervision of the on-site facilitator

                                               Page 8
(Instructors, Project Coordinators). The information collected on the Intake Form will then be
entered into the Huinet system, and will be available for review by approved personnel for
monitoring program activity. As the projects progress, notes on individual participants activities
and accomplishments will be collected by facilitators, and entered into the Huinet system.
Project exit interview notes and follow-up notes will also be entered into the Huinet system.
Throughout the duration of each project, the progress of the project will be monitored for
adherence to project design, and project effectiveness. In addition, to monitoring activities via
the online Huinet system, on-site visits will be conducted by the Project Evaluator throughout the
duration of the grant.

Step 4: Analyze data.
Under the guidance of the statewide staff, each of the program coordinators, subcontractors, and
other support staff will conduct data collection, and enter the collected data into the preexisting
online “Huinet” information management system. Statewide staff will monitor the data collection
and online entry activities to insure the timely entry of data into the Huinet system. The Huinet is
an innovative data management system that enables users to access project data, participant exit
and follow-up interview notes, and supplemental information on all RJTI projects across the
state, from any location, at any time.
The Evaluator will conduct data analysis and write the evaluation reports. RDP’s Information
Technology (IT) Specialists will provide technical support to the Evaluator to generate data
reports customized to the individual projects. These data reports will be used by the Evaluator to
facilitate data analysis and report generation upon completion of the individual projects. The data
is housed in a database, which is stored in the Huinet system, and can be extracted and imported
into spreadsheets, such as Excel, for manipulation, statistical analysis, and graphing. In addition,
paper copies of project data are generated quarterly for review and reference.

Step 5: Prepare reports.
Reports will be prepared at least quarterly by project staff to track the progress of each program.
Step 6: Improve project.
Results of the reports will be used to identify exemplary programs and approaches which can be
shared throughout the State. Reports will also identify projects which are not progressing in
accordance with the established work plan. In those cases, the reports will identify the reasons
for the delay and also identify the corrective action that will be taken and, if necessary, identify a
revised timeline for achieving the project goals.

Costs and Funding

The total amount allocated to the evaluation is $37,741.00, and is 2.5% of the total budget. The
cost of the evaluation component includes salary and fringe benefit costs for the evaluator and
support staff, related supplies, travel, and costs classified as “other.” Travel costs are inherently
high within the State of Hawaii, because airplane or ferry travel is required when traveling
between our Island communities. There are no “in-kind” contributions of resources from other



                                               Page 9
funding sources, although the University of Hawaii does provide major infrastructural support to
RJTI/RDP programs throughout the State.

Final Report

The evaluation report will be prepared by the evaluator and submitted by the Chancellor of Maui
Community College.


HUINET INTEGRATION WITH COOP & JOB PLACEMENT
Maui Community College is dedicated to the success of its students. To support this goal the
College utilizes several strategies targeted at maximizing opportunity for its students.
Cooperative education is one of these strategies and incorporates real-life on the job skills
development as an adjunct to its degree programs. A second strategy for student success is the
College’s Job Placement Services which matches graduates with appropriate employers in Maui
County. Underlying both strategies is the recognition that both Coop and Placement Services
need the best available information to fulfill their purpose. This project will take student
information residing in the Huinet System and utilize it as a tool to match student profiles with
available coop assignments and improve job opportunity for graduates seeking employment in
Maui County.

An integrated Huinet System will allow for the identification of students in the final stages of
participation in RJTI/RDP supported programs for the purpose of arranging employer specific
contacts through College arranged interviews. The purpose of this program is to make the
Huinet/Coop and Job Placement Services a proactive student support system.

The Rural Development Project Information Technology Department will work closely with the
Coop and Job Placement Services of the College to identify, capture, and integrate student data
in the Huinet System resulting in improved Coop and Job Placement Programs. Our vision is the
development of a personal student profile that supports both cooperative work assignments and
ultimately job placement.

CC Infrastructure– Baccalaureate Program Support
Abstract


Four Year Degree Programs:
Maui County residents and Maui Community College (MCC) students will benefit from the
Baccalaureate Program Support provided by the Rural Job Training Initiative. MCC envisions a
world-class college that meets the current and emerging Maui County education and training needs
through innovative, high quality programs offered in stimulating learning environments.
Beginning Fall 2005, Maui Community College will offer courses directed toward its first 4 year
degree. The degree, a Bachelor of Applied Science in Applied Business and Information
Technology (ABIT), addresses two areas of high interest in technical programs indicated in
response to a county-wide survey conducted in 2002.
Four-year degree programs are in demand in Maui County and Maui Community College has
dedicated a committee to research what new Bachelor degree programs could be offered in the next
two years on the MCC campus. The Baccalaureate Program Support component of this grant will
help pay for start-up costs, curriculum development and accreditation for additional 4 year
programs.
Nursing programs at MCC may be expanded under this grant addressing a critical nursing and
health care worker shortage in Hawaii. There are currently 300 students who would like to enroll in
the MCC Nursing School but because of faculty/student ratios required for clinical accreditation,
only 52 students can be accepted annually. An important addition to the allied health unit will be
the development of a Radiology Technician Program.
Since Maui has no public transportation system, offering college programs for students on Maui’s
Westside has been limited to those able to travel. This proposal includes efforts to provide
infrastructure support for the West Maui Education Center. Streaming video technology will
augment training efforts at this new ed center.
RJTI will provide personnel for development of a writing program targeting high school students in
a partnership with the Maui Writers Conference. Non-credit courses may be offered through
OCET and the University will continue to video stream the annual conference for use by MCC’s
English, Literature and Writing professors.


Vocational and Technical Ed Programs, Ecommerce:
Vocational and technical education programs have traditionally been at the heart of our community
college system in Hawaii. These programs must keep pace with emerging technologies and modern
service delivery methods. Several vocational programs at MCC need upgrades to maintain a
competitive edge. As part of this proposal, Ecommerce training will be initiated.
The Automobile Technology program provides a valuable training component at MCC and is
lacking technically advanced equipment to perform computerized diagnostics testing on newer cars
and trucks. Students studying in rural communities must be trained on industry-standard equipment


                                              Page 23
to be properly prepared for employment in this field. Major equipment upgrades are needed for this
program
MCC’s Fashion Technology department faces a similar fate. Technological advances in the fashion
industry have outpaced what is available to students in Maui County. This program also requires
material and equipment upgrades to insure that capable students with knowledge of up-to-date
trends and technology graduate from this program and find suitable employment because of their
training.
Sustainable Technologies & Alternative Energy
The Sustainable Technology department at MCC will include a new alternative energy training
program and has requested updated equipment to standardize teaching methods with other
Community Colleges and University of Hawaii sites. Equipment upgrades are necessary and
critical to the success of this program. Sustainable technologies (including alternative energy
systems) are among the fastest growing sector of the Hawaii economy according to the 2002-
2012 Employment Outlook for Industries and Occupations. One goal of this program will be to
develop alternative energies to help the MCC campus conserve energy and decrease
consumption and costs.
Expanding cultural boundaries in our global economy is important to students who are
geographically separated from Mainland communities. Maui Community College proposes to
partner with Kure Technical Junior College in Japan to develop an internet based language and
communication skills program whereby students from each country benefit and gain skills
required to work effectively in a multi-national business environment.

Supporting and retaining community college students is important to rural communities. New
students arriving at MCC are often unaware of services available to them which may help them
be successful in their college endeavors. The Student Life Department at MCC proposes adding
a one-credit course which will apprise students of the services and resources available to them on
the MCC campus and in the Maui County community. This program will help identify
struggling students and the resources they need before they give up on their education.
Finally, although Hawaii is experiencing the lowest unemployment in decades, this proposal
includes an effort to increase job placement assistance for MCC students and graduates.

Description of the Issue

STATEMENT OF NEED
As the only public higher education in Hawaii, the University of Hawaii (UH) system bears a special
responsibility to prepare a highly educated citizenry. The system supports the creation of quality
jobs and the preparation of an educated workforce to fill them. Building on a strong liberal arts
foundation, the UH system prepares a full array of workers from technicians, physicians, and
scientists to artists, teachers, writers and marketing specialists – workers who are needed in a
technologically advanced and culturally diverse island state.
Adding quality, relevant four-year degree programs is consistent with MCC's mission to provide
affordable, high quality educational opportunities to a diverse community of lifelong learners.
Additional degree program offerings provide greater opportunities to the community without
diverting significant resources from its core offerings. These programs are consistent with a number
of action strategies aimed at maximizing opportunities for students to enroll and transfer among
campuses to achieve their educational objectives.
Increasing four-year degree offerings at Maui Community College will enable students to compete
fairly for higher paying jobs in Maui’s growing economy. Businesses partners who have expressed
interest in hiring degreed technology majors include Boeing, Akimeka, Trex Industries, Maui High
Performance Computing Center and Maui Net. Jobs in fields requiring a Bachelor’s degree of some
kind typically start at 30K or more per year and increase as employees add to their training.
Dialogue, discussion and cooperation with business and community partners in Hawaii are necessary
to this program to serve workforce needs.
The Community College Infrastructure – Baccalaureate Support Program will also allow
development of vocational, certificate and non-degree programs that respond to emerging markets
and delivery systems that are responsive to public demands. MCC is committed to preserving its
applied sciences vocational and technical programs, open admissions philosophy, affordability, and
learning-centered focus even as its curriculum expands to offering a four-year degree. It is a
positive, creative, cost-effective means of addressing the geographic isolation of learners on Maui,
Hana, Moloka’i, and Lana’i.
This grant seeks to prepare students from diverse academic, ethnic and economic ranges by applying
a variety of business and information technology skill sets, theories, and practices in community
settings.

Description of the Target Area

Target Area
Hawaii is an island state located in one of the more isolated areas in the world, lying
approximately 2,100 nautical miles southwest of California and more than 4,000 miles from
Japan and the Philippines.

The greatest distance between any two of the larger Hawaiian Islands is the eighty miles from
Kauai to O’ahu, while the distances between adjacent islands average twenty-five miles or less.

The resident population according to the 2002 census was 1,257,608. The population is
concentrated on the island of O'ahu with a population of 896,019. The next highest populated
island is Hawaii with 154,794 residents followed by Maui with 134,139 residents. The rest of
the population is on the islands of Kauai, Lanai and Molokai. Except for the city of Honolulu,
which is located on O’ahu, all of Hawaii is designated as rural.

Geographically, the target areas of this grant are the more rural areas of the Hawaiian Islands.
The workforce and economic development needs outlined in this proposal were carefully and
strategically selected based on input and research that included labor and growth forecasts, state
resident demographics, local employment and emerging industry opportunities and workforce
statistics.

This proposal will serve all residents of the state of Hawaii interested in improving their skills,
knowledge and understanding in specific workforce sectors. Additionally, it will target students
of Maui Community College and residents of Maui County seeking career development through
training and education.

Students interested in vocational pursuits will be served through the upgrading of Automobile
Technology, Fashion Technology and Sustainable Technologies programs at MCC.
Individuals will be recruited for these programs through campus advertising, college catalogs,
and through WIA supported programs and the University system. The intent of the
Baccalaureate Support program is to increase the number of educated workers in Hawaii who are
qualified to support the high-technology industry in Hawaii. Applicants must meet college
entrance requirements.

Economic Information

The State of Hawaii Department of Labor and Industrial Relations projects the average annual
openings in sustainable technologies including construction and specialty trades contractors will
increase by 1,000 jobs between 2002 and 2012. Automobile support industries including
transportation and warehousing are projected to increase by 2.1%. Fashion industries in Hawaii are
projected to account for 370 new jobs while technology-related employment outlooks expect to
employ 1,600 new people in the next ten years. Technology-related jobs will be part of the new
economy that is replacing the plantation economy in rural Hawaii counties.
According to State Employment Outlook for Industries and Occupations for 2002 – 2012,
professional and business services including scientific and technical services and management
professionals account for 2.5% of the total expected job growth in Hawaii representing almost 2,000
new jobs. Employees competing for jobs in these fields must have Associate or Bachelor degrees,
training in management and technical fields will be critical to these job seekers. The second largest
employment sector projection is for Education and Health Services where growth of 2.1% is
projected representing an additional 2,253 jobs for the state in the next 10 years. Jobs in this area
include a 5% growth in Nursing and Residential Care facilities, with Social Assistance services
growing at a projected 2.9% rate.
The largest individual growth of any industry projected for 2002 -2012 is Water Transportation due
in part to a large “superferry” system being proposed in Hawaii.

 Statement of Work
 Target Group To Be Served (Participants)

Description
Maui County and other Hawaii residents seeking career development through training and
education, students attending Maui Community College, under-employed, low-income workers in
the workforce in rural Maui County and under-skilled individuals in the workforce in rural Maui
County will be the target group for these programs.
MCC faculty and staff will also be engaged and enlisted to investigate instructional and support
projects that will strengthen services to students and community while simultaneously creating a
continuing revenue stream.



Rationale for Selection
The State of Hawaii Department of Labor and Industrial Relations projects the average annual
openings in business and technology-related fields for Maui County at 720 and 4,620 for the rest of
the state. The workforce sectors identified in this proposal are part of the new economy that is
replacing the plantation economy in rural Maui County.
Population growth on Maui has increased exponentially in the last 10 years. Maui Community
College currently enrolls 2900 students. Growth of the college to accommodate more learners is
inevitable and must be carefully planned and executed. Infrastructure at MCC is critical to offering
more programs to more students in Maui County.

Needs and Other Services
Equipment and supplies for Automotive Technology, Sustainable Technology, Fashion Technology,
Nursing, Radiology Technician, Four Year Degree Programs, and non-credit programs will be
identified and requested.

Services To Be Provided

Description of Services
      Support of MCC’s first 4 year degree program, Applied Business Information
       Technology (ABIT) and the execution of upper-division level courses for this program.

                                              Page 35
    and provide learning alternatives for students. Infrastructure support to allow for training to
    occur at the West Maui Education Center in Lahaina may be provided.
   Specialty and other workforce training and certificate programs may be developed
    targeted specifically towards the needs of the business and technology industries that serve
    the new economy in Maui County including Automobile Technology, Radiology Tech,

    to services for students with the goal of increasing student retention. This program will
    provide information on financial aid and other important services that students can take
    advantage of.
   Maui Community College may develop an E-Commerce training program associated with
    the ABIT degree program or possibly as a non-credit offering through the Office of
    Continuing Education and Training (OCET). Students would be directly involved in the
    development and maintenance of a “real world” web site that could focus on sales of
    products produced on campus or other appropriate vendors.

    Conference by developing certificate programs in writing, business writing, publishing,
    etc.. The existing program of providing a training venue for live video streaming and video
    production will continue.

Narrative

A “Scope of Work” (SOW) will be developed for each of the programs in the table listing above
the Work Plan. The SOW will define the timeframe, services to be delivered, roles and
responsibilities, funding required, expected outcomes and reporting requirements. A SOW for
each program will be submitted to the USDOL for approval prior to implementation.

           Example: Radiology Technician Training
            The SOW would define the program, who develops the curriculum, how everything gets
            paid for, when and where the training would be delivered, how many people would be
            trained, how many people would attain employment.



                                                           Page 39
Once the SOWs have been developed and approved by the RJTI Statewide Director and the
Principal Investigator, MOUs would be executed as applicable for each program. At this point,
work will begin. Curriculum will be developed and infrastructure purchased as required.
Training will then take place and finally, job placement services will provided to participants as
needed.


Utilization

Products
Products resulting from the Community College Component will include training in the
following sectors: Students with AA degrees, Bachelor Degrees and Certificates of Training in
Automotive Technology, Fashion Technology, Nursing, Radiology Technician, E-Commerce,
Information Technology,


Findings
RJTI expects that the support from this grant will help increase the number or individuals placed
in employment with high technology companies. It is also expected that the number of
placements in radiology, automotive, fashion, and nursing will increase.


Research/Evaluation Component
Evaluation will be done by the RJTI/RDP State Office Evaluator as outlined in the Statewide
component of this proposal. Data will be analyzed to show effectiveness and feasibility.



Phase-Out Plan
PROJECTS in the Baccalaureate and Infrastructure portion of this grant will be adopted by Maui
Community College and will continue beyond the life of the grant.
Personnel:

RJTI State staff will support this project as outlined in the Statewide component of this
proposal.

Community Health Worker Training

Community Clinics

HAWAII PRIMARY CARE ASSOCIATION
ABSTRACT
The Community Health Worker Training Program of the Hawaii Primary Care Association (HPCA)
was established through a contract with the Hawaii Rural Development Program to develop a
training program to provide certification for Community Health Workers to support staffing needs
of community health centers (CHCs) and Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems (NHHCSs).
HPCA uses a systemic and comprehensive approach to upgrade skills of community outreach
workers and case managers currently working within their own community, resulting in the award of
a certificate in “Public Health Leadership”.
The goal of this program is to provide access to leadership skills resulting in an improvement in the
job status of participants, and an increase in the pool of candidates for executive director and other
upper-management positions in public health agencies.
Participants will achieve an improvement in job status as a result of this training program. Through
collaboration with Workforce Development Division and Alu Like offices throughout Hawaii,
participants will be better prepared to apply for positions utilizing their newly-acquired skills in
community health centers, Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems, and other appropriate health and
human service agencies. Participants will become role models and future leaders for rural
communities.

Statement of Need
Description of the Issue

Established in 1989, the Hawaii Primary Care Association (HPCA) is a non-profit organization
dedicated to fostering primary health care-basic medical, dental and behavioral health, and health
education services-for all Hawaii residents. HPCA is governed by a Board of Directors composed of
one director from each community health center and other qualifying primary care sites in Hawaii.
In addition to the Board of Directors, HPCA has a staff of nine employees who undertake a variety
of special projects focused on helping members strengthen their services. HPCA receives funding
from membership dues, federal and state grants, private foundations and donations from the
community.
HPCA represents health organizations and providers focused on primary care for medically
underserved people, such as low-income families, immigrants, the homeless, Native Hawaiians, and
those without health insurance. Core membership consists of non-profit multi-service Community
Health Centers and Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems founded and governed by the
communities they serve. These core members see more than 75,000 patients annually on seven
islands. Members include physicians, hospitals, schools, HMOs, and other entities with a special
interest in primary care for the underserved populations in rural communities.
The Hawaii Primary Care Association strives to initiate and support action that achieves access to
quality community-based primary care and that eliminates health disparities throughout Hawaii.
They assist organizations and providers who offer accessible health services to underserved
individuals regardless of the individual’s ability to pay.
In addition, Hawaii Community Health Centers and Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems anticipate
a significant increase in the demand for community case managers over the next few years. Oral
health, elderly care, mental health, and chronic disease management are all areas slated for significant
expansion, by federal and state governments, and all four areas will require community-based case
management to ensure appropriate and cost-effective care.

Description of the Target Area

The purpose of this program is to increase the pool of representatives of Hawaii’s medically
underserved populations as candidates for positions in public health agencies in underserved rural
communities in the state of Hawaii. Hawaii’s medically underserved populations include Native
Hawaiians, immigrants, Pacific Islanders, especially those from the Marshall Islands, Federated
States of Micronesia and Palau, and homeless and uninsured populations. Oahu, Kauai, Lanai,
Molokai, Maui and the Big Island of Hawaii are targeted areas for this program.

Statement of Work

This program will provide management and leadership training to its participants resulting in a certificate in
“Public Health Leadership”. The certificate will be designed to provide a foundation in management,
leadership, professional development, strategies and best practices for working with underserved populations,
and issues and best practices in public health for potential public health administrators.

Target Group To Be Served (Participants)

Description
Participants will be recruited from rural communities and be representatives of medically
underserved populations throughout the state.

Rationale for Selection
Participants in this program will be drawn from the underserved communities throughout rural
Hawaii where the clinics are situated. Because they usually understand and come from the
community being served, targeted participants for management training will be better able to
fulfill their role in helping medically underserved people overcome cultural, linguistic,
bureaucratic and economic barriers to health care.


Needs and Other Services
Hawaii Community Health Centers and Native Hawaiian Health Care Systems anticipate a
significant increase in the demand for managers and community case managers over the next few
years. Oral health, elderly care, mental health, and chronic disease management are all areas slated
for significant expansion, by federal and state governments, and all four areas will require
community-based case management to ensure appropriate and cost-effective care.
Participants will gain access to this training through the local community college campus or
education center.




Services To Be Provided

Description of Services
HPCA will collaborate with the community colleges of the University of Hawaii to arrange logistics
for the certificate program, including schedule, room assignments, instructors, dates and times, etc.

Narrative
The RJTI Contracts and Grants Associate will write the MOA with the Hawaii Primary Care
Association (HPCA). The HPCA will hire a Project Coordinator to see the project through
completion. The overall strategy for delivering the training program to participants follows a logical
sequence of curricula development, training classes, certification, and follow up.




Utilization

Products
This Management and Leadership Training Course (focused on rural community health
providers and the issues and challenges they face) will continue to be available via the UH
System after completion of this project.
This project will prepare a cadre of future management level individuals drawn from the local
community capable of improving the delivery of, and access to, community health services in
rural Hawaii.
Rural Hawaii communities will benefit due to the enhanced capacity of management to deal
effectively with challenges inherent to underserved populations.

Findings
It is hoped that this program will result in more rural community members attaining management
positions in the community clinics and Native Hawaiian Health Care System facilities located
throughout the state.
The follow-up survey will determine the effectiveness of this training.

Research/Evaluation Component

Evaluator
Evaluation will be done by the RDP State Office Evaluation Specialist with support from the
HPCA Project Coordinator. The evaluation process is described in the Statewide section of this
proposal.




                                               Page 55
Phase-Out Plan
This program will phase out when the funds have been expended and training delivered. The
Management and Leadership Training Course will continue to be available via the UH System.


 This program provides for curriculum development that may be permanently established and
 adopted by OCET training facilities statewide once created.


Personnel
This program will be a contract with Hawaii Primary Care Association. They will be responsible for
hiring any personnel.

Staffing Level Rationale
This program will be a contract with Hawaii Primary Care Association. They will be responsible for

Just-In-Time Training
Abstract
Who: The Rural Job Training Initiative / Rural Development Project (RJTI/RDP) will implement
Just-in-Time project(s) to support new and unanticipated changes in workforce needs for rural
Hawaii. RJTI/RDP is based at Maui Community College, an operating unit of the University of
Hawaii and, as such, works closely with Community Colleges and other state agencies throughout
rural Hawaii. RJTI/RDP is charged with developing rural grassroots projects and initiatives that will
improve economic conditions for businesses and the workforce in rural areas throughout Hawaii.
RJTI/RDP partners with business, Community Colleges, state and local workforce development
agencies and other concerned community partners in solving workforce related challenges and
concerns.


What: RDP/RJTI intends to address the workforce needs of rural Hawaii by providing a variety of
workforce development projects targeted to solve current and anticipated challenges such as
shortfalls in certain occupational categories and development of new skills and capabilities within the
existing workforce. The specific nature of these prospective Just-in-Time project(s) can not be
identified as of the time of this grant submittal. Notwithstanding our inability to presciently forecast
future workforce, past history has shown that flexibility and agility are necessary to address changes
in workforce requirements as new companies and new processes are introduced to the rural
Hawaiian communities. The objectives of this program are to provide a wide range of support
services which may include training, provision of materials and supplies, and other as yet
unidentified support strategies that will result in a workforce that meets the challenges of the 21 st
Century.
.
Why: Fundamental economic change is underway both in Hawaii and throughout the world. What
made sense a year ago may not make sense today, and, what makes sense today may very well
change by next year. We see companies embracing technology and clamoring for the workforce this
entails. The prudent planner must anticipate general industry trends, but, have the flexibility to tailor
specific programs to the needs of the evolving island economy. Without the flexibility of the Just-
in-Time projects the RJTI program would lose its most important characteristic; the ability to satisfy
changing workforce requirements.
How: Training needs will be identified through collaboration with our partners in economic
development. RJTI/RDP will work with our partners in developing curricula, outreach and intake
of participants, delivery of training and assessment of efficacy.

Statement of Need
Description of the Issue
The Hawaii workforce faces capacity challenges as it operates at a 3.3% unemployment rate.
Expansion of retail, education, food and construction industries will place demands of the
available workforce and reduce its ability to satisfy new and expanding businesses in Hawaii.
The workforce, as it is now constructed, lacks the depth of experience and training to meet the
needs of new industries and expanding companies that are making fundamental changes in their
operations as they adopt new technology and processes. Hawaii is the most isolated economy in
the United States and must be able to use its existing population to support the changing
workforce needs of the 21st century. Hawaii cannot readily access workforce resources from
neighboring states; it must look within itself, identify the need, find the workforce and shape it to
fit the needs of the economy. Hawaii must rely on the flexibility and agility of Just-in-Time
Initiatives to stay competitive in the global market.
New restrictions on immigration have eliminated previous sources of needed employees and the
evolving economy has dictated adjustment of the skill mix of existing and prospective workers.
Change is happening and the direction is not always known in advance.

Goals/Objectives
Goals
These RJTI programs will help to supply businesses with the workforce needed to compete in the
21st Century global economy. The objective is to be able to move quickly in identify needs,
formulate solutions and implement training that supports the continued success of the Hawaiian
economy. We anticipate training a minimum of 30 individuals through this program

Statement of Work
JUST IN TIME Training may occur on any one or all Hawaiian Islands depending on demand,
funds availability, and alignment of need with criteria. Recommendations for programs may be
made by concerned community partners and/or impacted businesses and target immediate and
newly emerging workforce needs in Hawaii. Just-in-Time needs will be identified, projects
initiated, curricula developed, participants recruited and trained, with evaluation and follow-up to
occur after each project is completed. Needs vary on each island and projects in each area may
be different.

Target Group To Be Served (Participants)

Description


 Rural Hawaii residents (when appropriate - incumbent workers) will be the beneficiaries of
 these Just-in-Time Training initiatives that will be designed to satisfy workforce shortages or
 needs of employers.


Rationale for Selection
Rationale for selection to participate will be predicated on the particular Just-in-Time program.
Participants will be Hawaii residents that possess the potential for satisfying the workforce
shortage or need that the Just-in-Time project(s) addresses. We are estimating that a minimum of
30 individuals will benefit from this Just-in-Time project(s).

Needs and Other Services
Hawaii’s unemployment rate of 3.3% is a clear indicator of a workforce that faces capacity
challenges. In order to meet changing needs of industry, programs may have to be formulated on
a Just-in Time basis. The luxury of long-range planning and thoughtful allocation of future
resources becomes challenging when the workforce borders on full employment. New industries
and changes to existing operations translate to new and changing requirements for the workforce.
Just-in-Time programs will reach Hawaii residents on all the islands, as needed, to provide the
knowledge, skills and ability to meet employer needs.




                                             Page 69
Services To Be Provided

Description of Services
These programs may provide support by Community Colleges and other concerned community
partners when the Just-in-Time need is identified and at the most advantageous location possible.
Delivery of training may take the form of classroom, on-site or field education as appropriate in
the circumstance. These programs may provide items such as training, materials and supplies to
support a variety of Just-in-Time workforce development programs throughout the state.

       identified in the “List of Occupations” included in the Economic Information Section of
       this Just-in-Time proposal.

      Jobs must be available for participants once training is completed.

      Outcomes and measurements will be established. No project will be implemented unless
       clear outcomes can be established.

      The JIT project will undergo review and receive approval/disapproval, by the Statewide
       RJTI/RDP Project Director.

Narrative
 It is anticipated that RJTI will be an on-going process of identification, program development,
participant selection and training implementation followed by assessment. Following the timelines
in the table above, please note that programs can begin at any time after the first quarter. Agility is
important and these JIT programs may be initiated at any time and may encompass short and longer
term training programs tailored to the workforce needs of the Hawaiian economy.

Utilization

Products
These RJTI projects will provide tangible training programs which may be replicated and delivered
to other Hawaii residents as appropriate
These projects will also create a pool of trained, competent employees who can satisfy the workforce
need which gave rise to the JIT project. These individuals will have acquired new job skills and
training which may increase their employability.

Findings
It is anticipated that the findings from the RJTI project(s) will result in improved identification,
development, implementation and assessment strategies that can be utilized to address workforce
needs for future projects. Examples could include improved identification through broadened
industry access methodologies. RJTI staff may develop standardized MOA that reduce processing
time. RJTI staff assessments of training delivery may result in identification of best practices that
result in the most cost effective delivery of services. RJTI staff may increase efficiencies in the


                                               Page 74
assessment phase through the identification of high-value metrics that can be utilized on subsequent
programs.

E. Research/Evaluation Component


1. Evaluator
Evaluation will be done by the RJTI/RDP State Office Evaluation Specialist. The evaluation
process is described in the Statewide section of this proposal.




Phase-Out Plan
Sustainability for Just -in-Time training may come from the adoption of similar programs by
local Community Colleges or other community partners. Successful programs may be replicated
on other islands to meet similar workforce needs. Phase out may take place in segments as
individual JIT projects are completed and assessment takes place.


Personnel
RJTI/RDP Statewide personnel will oversee Just-in-Time training. Additional personnel may be
needed to coordinate training and specialists and/or instructors may be hired as deemed
appropriate. Please see Statewide Personnel Section at beginning of this proposal for complete
description of RJTI/RDP statewide personnel.

Staffing Level Rationale
The staffing levels needed to develop and implement a successful JIT project will vary based on
the workforce need. The RJTI Program Director will either assign existing staff to specific
projects if work load permits, or will hire a project coordinator to assure that adequate
management support is available to oversee the JIT project from start to finish.

(MWIM) Technologies Training Program

Machine, Welding, and Industrial Mechanics
Hawaii Island

 Abstract

Who: The RJTI/RDP through Hawaii Community College, on the Big Island of Hawaii, proposes
to work with community partners such as the Hawaii County Workforce Investment Board, the
County of Hawaii Office of Economic Development, State of Hawaii Workforce Development
Division and other concerned community partners in implementing this RJTI project. Partners may
provide input and assistance at various stages of this project and RJTI/RDP anticipates support
from partners in areas of their expertise.
What: This RJTI project will train Big Island residents to fill the workforce need for welders and
workers that possess skills in the areas of hydraulics, pneumatics, metallurgy, refrigeration/air
conditioning (RAC), and industrial maintenance. This RJTI project is a continuation of an existing
program instituted by the College. To date the initial stages of this overall RJTI program have
trained individuals in basic welding skills; and, this program will enhance the ability of participants to
work with new and changing hydraulic, pneumatic, metallurgy, refrigeration, air conditioning and
industrial maintenance systems.
The objectives of this program are to enroll and train 20 students and to promote the program and
support the students in their efforts to achieve self sufficiency. Hawaii Community College supports
the development, expansion, modification and implementation of this program.
Why: This RJTI project will meet the workforce need for Machine Shop Welding and Industrial
Mechanics (MWIM) Technologies training including workforce training in hydraulics, pneumatics,
metallurgy, refrigeration and air conditioning (RAC), and industrial maintenance. The Big Island of
Hawaii underwent profound workforce change when a major sugar plantation closed in the mid
1990’s. This closure of the major industrial operation on the Big Island impacted the need for
welders throughout the County. As welders that supported the needs of the plantation lost jobs and
found other employment, and few entrants in to the welding trades occurred, a shortfall in this
occupation developed. This was exacerbated by the advent of new technologies and mechanical
advancements that required skills not possessed by the limited welding workforce that remained.
This RJTI project will bring new entrants in to the welding trade and provide the level of expertise
needed to support the welding needs of the Mauna Kea observatories and numerous hotels, resorts
and other operations that have need for welding services on the island of Hawaii.
How: This RJTI project will be delivered through the Hawaii Community College and its Office of
Continuing Education and Training. This RJTI project will utilize industrial training modules that
incorporate hydraulics, pneumatics, metallurgy, refrigeration/air conditioning (RAC), and industrial
maintenance. Instructional equipment, classroom and general facility modification and repairs,



                                                Page 81
instructional and student software licenses, and training systems will be supported. Promotion of the
program and student recruitment will be supported.



 STATEMENT OF NEED

The Big Island of Hawaii underwent profound workforce change when a major sugar plantation
closed in the mid 1990’s. This closure of the major industrial operation on the Big Island
impacted the need for welders throughout the County. As welders that supported the needs of
the plantation lost jobs and found other employment, and few entrants in to the welding trades
occurred, a shortfall in this occupation developed.   This was exacerbated by the advent of new
technologies and mechanical advancements that required skills not possessed by the limited
welding workforce that remained.
The summit of Mauna Kea is home to the world’s greatest concentration of optical and infrared
celestial imagining equipment. These high-cost, high-technology operations have created their
own demand for advanced welding, mechanical and maintenance services; coupling this with
expanding demand from hotels, resorts and other operations, resulting in a “perfect storm” of
workforce need for advanced welding training, thus, the need for this RJTI project.

Description of the Issue
The issue RJTI/RDP and Hawaii Community College face is building the training infrastructure
necessary to successfully satisfy the workforce need for competent welders and industrial
technology workers on the Big Island of Hawaii.



Description of the Target Area
Hawaii County is the largest of the four counties with an area of 4,038 square miles, roughly the
size of the State of Connecticut. Hilo and Kona serve as main ports of call and as a result are
more enhanced in terms of economic activity as compared to other major regions on the island.
One million of the state’s 1.8 million acres of agriculture land are in the County of Hawaii. It is
this County which imported the most field hands for the sugar industry and to this day has 30
small communities (former plantation camps) within a widely dispersed 260 miles perimeter




                                              Page 82

Economic Information
The Census estimated resident population in total for the County of Hawaii in 2003 is 158,423 and
reflects a population growth of 6.6% from April 1, 2000 to July 1, 2003.             The current
unemployment rate of 3.3% reflects the burgeoning visitor and construction industries which have
enjoyed three consecutive years of solid growth.
The economy of the Big Island, like all other counties in Hawaii, is linked inexorably to the visitor
industry. Agriculture plays a larger economic role on the Big Island than elsewhere in Hawaii, with
25% of its Gross Product coming from crops and cattle ranching.
Historically, unemployment rates in Hawaii County have been higher than the state overall, but the
gap has been diminishing in the past five years.
Four industry sectors dominate Hawaii County’s total employment: 1) Leisure and hospitality, which
includes food services; 2) Trade, transportation and utilities; 3) government; and, 4) Education and
health services, which includes health care and social assistance. Together these four industries
accounted for nearly 72 percent of total employment in Hawaii County.
Hawaii County’s average annual wage was $27,355 ($13.15/hr), more than 12 percent lower than the
State of Hawaii average of $31,241. This gap is also being closed with Hawaii County’s wages
increasing 15.3 percent from 1996 to 2001, while the State of Hawaii increased 14.2 percent.
The jobs created through this RJTI project will be among the highest paid with average annual
journeyman salaries of $44,045 ($21.18).

Narrative
This refrigeration component of this program is not expected to begin until the first quarter of the
second grant year. The industrial refrigeration simulator and other supplies for the training will be
purchased ahead of the fifth quarter start.
Outreach will be conducted via OCET’s marketing efforts and catalog listings. WDD will be made
aware of the program.
We anticipate that most students will enter program and continue on to attain AS Degrees in
Industrial Technologies. The classes can be taken by individuals who want to gain a specific skill
such as refrigeration, welding, hydraulics, etc..
Outcomes should be realized at the end of the grant period as students graduate or complete
training.

Utilization

Products
This training program will assist in meeting a shortage of qualified, well-trained refrigeration
technicians, welders, and other industrial technology technicians on the Big Island. The MWIM
course offerings, simulators, and classroom tools and supplies will support the program beyond
the grant period.

Findings
Occupation skills for fabricating, installing, repairing, and/or maintaining equipment, building and
systems seemed to be in less demand with the demise of the sugar industry which required skilled
laborers at each plantation. The Hawaii Community College Machine Shop Technology Program
was terminated in 1996 due to a decline in demand for machinists. There was a “pool” of qualified
machinists from the sugar plantations for the few years after the plantations closed their operations.
This “pool” of qualified machinists has since been depleted, and in recent years there has been an
increased demand for the training of machinists. There now exists a need to address the shortage of
a multi-skilled workforce in Machine, Welding and Industrial Mechanics Technologies for local
employment opportunities in construction, food processing, manufacturing, utilities, astronomical
observatories, and related industries.

Research/Evaluation Component

Evaluator
Evaluation will be done by the RJTI/RDP State Office Evaluator with support from the Island
Director and staff. The evaluation process is described in the Statewide section of this proposal.



Phase-Out Plan
PHASE OUT FOR this project includes incorporating project into Community College or OCET curriculum
for as long as it is appropriate to do so.

Reach For Your Dreams Program
 Abstract
Who: Project partners for the Reach For Your Dreams program include RDP, Maui Community
College, Kuina Program, Alu Like, Maui Office of Economic Development (OED) and Workforce
Development Division (WDD).
What: The objectives of this program are to support and mentor individuals pursuing their
education goals via college, vocational, certificate or training programs; to empower individuals
seeking employment by providing them with appropriate resources and training to increase their skill
level to help meet the needs of the business community; to encourage MCC students to succeed in
employment by placing them in Student Assistant positions in their field of interest; to mentor MCC
students who need to improve education and training in order to support themselves. The RFYD
program will continue to pay work-study monies to college students who qualify for federal financial
aid.
Why: Many students who lack support systems never complete the paperwork required or acquire
the documentation they need to qualify for financial aid assistance or for the programs themselves.
The Reach For Your Dreams project provides mentorship, counseling workshops and other support
services for individuals who encounter education challenges. The success of this project is based on
the one-on-one attention given to each student and the exemplary follow-through of program staff.
The RFYD program offers workshops in the following area: Time Management, Stress
Management, Test Taking Strategies, Study Skills and any other support services requested by
participants. The RFYD Program Coordinator will provide work-study placements for qualified
participants interested in gaining work-based experience.

 Statement of Need
 Description of the Issue
Because preparing for and enrolling in college or training programs can be a complicated process,
many students never complete the paperwork required or collect the documentation they need to
qualify for financial aid assistance or for the programs themselves.
The Reach For Your Dreams Project needs to expand its services in order to meet the demand for
education and training of Maui County residents. This project proposes to partner with
Workforce Development Division (WDD) and the Office of Economic Development to identify
interested applicants and help them prepare for enrollment in MCC and/or University of Hawaii
programs offered at MCC. This program is a college support program combining group support
sessions, college, vocational, certificate or training program on Maui, financial aid counseling,
employment referral, and other critical services that individuals need to succeed in their
educational goals. This target group experiences tremendous challenges and obstacles such as
hopelessness and lack of self esteem derived from family histories of domestic violence, drug /
alcohol abuse, absent fathers, homelessness and welfare dependence.
Understanding the distinct challenges to these students, the RFYD Program has developed “wrap
around” services that provide a safety net of support and encouragement to ensure that
participants succeed in college. The Program philosophy is that students are provided a “hand
up” not a “hand down”. As a result, each stage of a participant’s success is based on the
participant’s own hard work and commitment to their education.

Description of the Target Area
The target area of this proposal is the island of Maui. It consists of 728 square miles, with over
42% of its land classified Conservation, 53% Agriculture, with the remaining 5% Residential.
Residential communities are located throughout the island with the exception of the southeastern
coast bordering the Alenuihaha Channel, the higher reaches of Haleakala and the West Maui
Mountains. Primary concentrations of population occur in the central valley communities of
Kahului and Wailuku, the upcountry communities of Kula, Makawao and Pukalani, the south
Maui communities of Kihei and Wailea and the west Maui communities of Lahaina, Kaanapali
and Kapalua.

Maui is a microcosm of our nation; socially stratified, with gated communities springing up as
sanctuaries of privilege, while low-income families are forced to double up in substandard
housing, a paycheck away from the street. The impact of hiring higher paid employees from
off-island sources will further marginalize an already challenged local workforce. Our programs
are focused on improving the standard of living for our local population through increased
opportunity and access to higher paying and more rewarding jobs.

Narrative
The start up will be quick because the program is in place, as is a coordinator. Outreach,
recruitment, intake, and eligibility determination will continue uninterrupted due to the fact that
the program is already underway. Workshops and work-study placement will begin in the
second quarter because that is when the fall quarter begins. The recruitment process will go right
up to the end because we intend to continue this program in our next grant proposal.

Phase out discussions are already underway. No definite path has been defined, but possibilities
include institutionalizing the program or incorporating into the counseling department.


Utilization

Products
PRODUCTS RESULTING from this project include work-ready students with developed work ethic
and knowledge of what is expected from them as a member of the workforce.
Where appropriate, work experience placements and partnerships with area businesses will be
developed and appropriate job placements for participants will be initiated. It should be noted here,
that students typically are more successful academically when their work placement is located on
campus.

Findings
A BETTER EDUCATED workforce on Maui means less unemployment, more college enrollment
resulting in a more educated workforce.

Research/Evaluation Component
Evaluation will be done by the Statewide RDP Evaluator and support staff.. The evaluation process
is described in the statewide section of this proposal.

Phase-Out Plan
As noted previously, phase-out discussions are already taking place. Options that have been
discussed include the possibility of institutionalizing the program, and/or incorporating into the
counseling department.

Trades/Unions/Journey Worker & Apprenticeships

Abstract

Who:
Incumbent members, applicants, and apprentices of building trade unions on the island of
Oahu and who require upgraded skills and knowledge.


What:
This program will provide training and other assistance to journey workers and other building trade
union members located on the island of Oahu to improve and upgrade their skills in order to
compete for jobs with contractors involved with the military construction projects underway on
Oahu.


Why:
New military construction projects on Oahu are straining the ability of the unions to provide an
adequate supply of qualified workers. The need for advanced certifications and new technology
training is taxing the training resources of the Oahu Trade Unions.
HOW: Training will be provided through Honolulu Community College or Labor Union Training
Centers.

  Statement of Need
  Description of the Issue
The Island of O’ahu, located in the state of Hawaii, is home to 26 military bases, with over 20,500
housing units owned by the combined armed forces. All military housing on O’ahu has been
targeted for rebuilding, thus creating a predicted three billion dollar boost to the construction
industry on O’ahu. This enormous increase in planned building is expected to create more work
than the existing workforce on O’ahu can meet, and is also expected to deplete workforces on
neighbor islands, as construction workers relocate to O’ahu to meet the expanded job market. The
end result will be a depleted construction workforce across the entire State.
 The workers expected to fill this need must be properly trained in order to successfully meet the
challenges of a booming construction industry. The training will address skills necessary to make
workers productive, competitive, and safe in the workplace. Safety and health training must be able
to meet current OSHA requirements and standards in such areas as scaffolding, AED training, aerial
lifts, construction forklifts, fall protection, respirators, confined space, and more. Although training
is currently approached in this manner, workforce training needs will be multiplied by the increased
demands which are expected. Therefore, the need for funding to expand and add to current training
programs is required. Training designed to keep up with new technology and required certifications
may also be initiated. The project will support instructors with expertise in the areas such as: journey
worker training, safety training, OSHA, Haz-Mat, product certification, mandated training, advanced
technology training, and Train the Trainers training. The training will be implemented through
Honolulu Community College, located on the island of O’ahu.

 Description of the Target Area




 Economic Information
Jobs will be available on military housing construction projects underway on the island of Oahu.
Project Labor Agreements have been, or are being, negotiated that will assure employment of
union labor. These are quality jobs and the projects are expected to continue for at least the next
5 years and possibly longer. The economic impact of maintaining union wages will allow
workers to enjoy a respectable standard of living and have a beneficial impact on the overall
economy of the island.

GOALS & OBJECTIVES

Goals
The goal of this Program is to maintain a highly trained and competitive workforce capable of meeting the
expanding needs of the building industry on Oahu.
The expected boom in construction is impacting Oahu already. The concern is meeting the expected
shortage of manpower. Training programs must increase in size to meet industry needs. This means more
classroom space, more instructors and more materials for training. Trainings and support must be available
for the whole year, not just Spring and Fall semesters.

Narrative
It is anticipated that a coordinator will be hired during the first quarter. Once hired, the coordinator
will work with the unions, HCC and RDP to create MOUs and oversee development of curricula
and courses. At the same time (towards end of first quarter or beginning of the second quarter)
outreach and recruitment be conducted by the unions. Training will be conducted throughout the
period of the grant until funding is depleted. Once participants complete courses, the unions will
provide job placement with contractors.

PMRF High Tech Workforce Training

Abstract


Who: Kaua’i residents
What: The objectives of this program are to offer education to Kaua’i residents so that they may
find employment with the contractors providing services to the Pacific Missile Range Facility at
Barking Sands; to complete the CISCO Router and other advanced computer hardware and
software training and achieve employment or upgrade participant skills and earning potential; and to
place trained individuals with businesses serving the Pacific Missile Range Facility or other
employers requiring these high tech skills. This program is the continuation of an existing grant.
Why: To reduce the dependency of the PMRF on mainland workers and to increase the number of
local workers employed by the facility and its sub contractors by providing specialized training in
network hardware and software. This training is designed to improve the retention rate of Kaua’i
residents employed at the PMRF and those employed by sub-contractors.
HOW: One hundred employees and non-employees of the PMRF and its sub-contractors will
receive specialized training to help them achieve employment or retain their employment with
PMRF subcontractors.



 Description of the Issue

The Pacific Missile Range Facility at Barking Sands on Kaua’i and its sub-contractors employ over
650 individuals involved in high-technology and that number is projected to increase as the
government moves forward with the Missile Defense Initiative.
Without specialty networking and computer technology training, the local workforce cannot meet
employer needs for technicians certified to build and maintain the hardware and network
infrastructure needed to support software development.
There is a vital need for on-going computer training programs to ensure that the local workforce will
exist for employers. If a local workforce is not trained, the demand will be met with out-of-state
workers whose lack of acculturation to Kaua’i results in a large turnover rate of mainland workers.
A trained workforce to meet an employer demand for computer and technology literate employees
would impact the island’s unemployment.
This grant will provide Cisco router (Cisco Network Administrator, CNA) Auto Cad, management,
supervisory, Fiber Optics and other types of training classes that will improve retention rates for
existing employees, open up employment to newly trained local workforce, and alleviate the need for
PMRF and its contractors to recruit from the mainland. Furthermore, this funding will allow the
college to acquire new computers to more successfully teach these computer programs and also
cover the classroom building lease expense.

 Description of the Target Area

 Kauai County includes the islands of Kauai, Niihau, and uninhabited Lehua and Kaula. The
 Island of Kauai has an area of approximately 552.3 square miles with 90 miles of coastline.




 Economic Information
Hawaii's cost of living is one of America's highest, its per capita personal income below average.
In fact, Hawaii's cost of living for a family of four is estimated to be approximately 27% higher
than the U.S. average for a comparable standard of living.

Target Group To Be Served (Participants)

Description
KAUAI residents seeking employment with subcontractors serving the Pacific Missile Research Facility or
other high tech job employment on the island of Kauai. The target group shall also include incumbent
workers seeking to retain their jobs and any Kauai resident who has the desire and ability to work in the tech
industry.

Rationale for Selection
It is the intent of the Rural Development Project to select an appropriate number of participants
for each class based on experience, desire and need for the particular specialty training available.


Needs and Other Services
The key need here is to supply a steady stream of trained Kauai residents to fulfill PMRF
workforce needs and reduce dependency on mainland workers who typically do not stay. The
Pacific Missile Range Facility is a significant contributor to national defense initiatives. It is
imperative that Kauai’s workforce be capable of meeting the needs of our nation’s national
defense.

  Narrative – Work Plan
This program is an extension of a program already in existence. Start Up is easy, as the
RDP/RJTI director is already in place. New MOUs will be executed with the Kauai Community
College Office of Continuing Education and Training (OCET) as required and determined by the
number and type of classes that might be required. OCET will develop curriculum (for new
classes only) and participate in discussions with employers as training needs are identified.

                                                 Page 137
Outreach and recruitment are ongoing. Employers and their employees receive notification of
new training opportunities. OCET class offerings are distributed to the community via mailings
and catalogs and other means.


Training will be provided on an ongoing basis as demand dictates and as classes can be
scheduled. As each class concludes, participants will be surveyed regarding their employment
status and placement services will be offered if needed.




  Utilization

Products
The product of this project is the development of a qualified workforce capable of meeting the needs of the
Pacific Missile Range Facility and its subcontractors, providing employment to Kauai residents, thus reducing
the need to import employees with the requisite skills needed to assure that our National Defense is
maintained.
Other products will include new courses developed by OCET and offered as dictated by demand in the
future.

Findings
At the conclusion of this project, or identifiable segments of this project, RDP will be able to evaluate the
effectiveness of meeting the workforce needs of the Pacific Missile Range Facility and its subcontractors.

  Research/Evaluation Component
Evaluation will be done by the RDP State Office Evaluation Specialist with support from the Island
Director and staff. The evaluation process is described in the Statewide section of this proposal.

Phase-Out Plan
These programs may be adopted by Kauai Community College OCET as regular course offerings.


Personnel

KAUAI COMMUNITY COLLEGE staff will facilitate this training. Kauai RDP Island Director will ensure that
all work plan steps are followed and implemented and that reports are filed in a timely manner.


Staffing Level Rationale
Programs will be delivered by the Kauai Community College Office of Continuing Education and Training
(OCET). This will minimize the amount of staff time required by the Project Director.
