DACUM (Developing A CurriculUM)

DacuumCustomized training is one of the services that ATTE offers. We can develop curriculum on any green related subject. Below is a brief description of the DACUM process, and links to the Ohio State University DACUM program. You will also find a list of the classes that ATTE has developed using the DACUM process.

What is DACUM?

DACUM is a quick, effectively, relatively low cost method of analyzing jobs and occupations that has been used worldwide for more than 40 years.  It results in the production of a DACUM chart listing the duties, tasks, and related information about the job.  The chart provides a solid and relevant foundation for developing a curriculum and instructional materials.

For more information on this method visit the DACUM website at Ohio University:

ATTE can develop any course your organization is looking for using the DACUM process. Some organizations that have hired ATTE to develop course through DACUM are as follows:

ATTE Translation

ATTE can translate any curriculum or "green" related documentation into multiple languages. ATTE was awarded an International Development Research Centre (IDRC) grant in 2010 to translate our Energy Management and Solar Site Planner class to Spanish and to present the class to the unemployed Spanish community for free. ATTE has also written reports for South America in Spanish. We have the capacity to translate in nearly any language.
