Join your peers from the Bay Area's leading companies as we share how to meet the challenge of finding, training and keepingkey technical employees including ... machinists, maintenance & repair, field support, QA/QC, tool & die, facilities and more!

Did you know?

California set an ambitious goal of hiring and training 500,000 new technical skills apprentices during the next 10 years.

The State's infrastructure capital improvement plans means there will be dramatic competition to find, attract and hire suitably skilled entry-level and technical workers, while at the same time creating unprecedented new business opportunities.

California Community Colleges have "geared up" remarkable facilities, instructors and new curriculum designed to meet the need, BUT, many employers are unaware of these new programs.

Food, Beverage, Energy, Aerospace, Semiconductor, Capital Equipment, Transportation and High Tech manufacturers alike throughout the Bay Area will benefit from these programs!
More of what you'll hear:

  • Eliminate high-turnover, get rid of high recruiting fees and "false starts"
  • Qualify for significant State & Federal training (fee reimbursement) Programs
  • Maximize the skills of your technical workforce 
  • Minimize the costs - through certified training by approved community college programs
  • Learn how APPRENTICESHIP programs work
