About this talk

The presentation will cover how a number of community colleges offer customized training (i.e. contract education) to business and industry. The training is typically offered as not-for-credit fee based in priority industry sectors. Often the training costs can by subsidized using California Employment Training Panel (ETP) funds or costs can be covered using Strong Workforce Programs like the Employment Bridge. The California Community Colleges (CCC) help businesses’ by providing intensive, short-term, customized training for their workforce. This training helps increase productivity and close the skills gap within an organization: it can also eliminate hiring pain points with employment bridge programs. Typically, the training is delivered onsite at the employer’s location but can now offer most of the training topics online.
The CCC’s also offer Work Based Learning (WBL) opportunities for students and are designed to support students in identifying career opportunities by exposure to real world professional experiences through job shadowing, employer site tours, and workshops. As students’ progress in their academic pursuits, the colleges help keeps them on their path by providing on the job experience through paid and unpaid internships which will allow the students to experience first-hand how the knowledge and skills they are learning in the classroom directly applies to work and careers.
