Phuong Nguyen a Veteran Employment Representative in California posted this training program for interested veterans in the California area.

SHORT TERM-TRAINING – The training is FREE for qualified veterans. Training Location will be at Fullerton College 321 E. Chapman Street, Fullerton, CA 92832

I recently spoke with Center for Applied Competitive Technologies North Orange County Community College District / SCE and they said that they received a grant for short term-training for the following area:

– Printing (Label & Packaging) — 20 open slots
– Machining – 20 open slots
– Welding Technology — FULL but will be placed on waiting list for February 2014

Program Detail:

•Label Manufacturing is 16 weeks and 12 college credits and an Industry sponsored Certification
•Machining is two-semesters (32 weeks) and a college Certificate yields 13 to 26 college units–depending on the training/career path.
•Welding is 16 weeks Monday-Friday, and another 6 weeks (the following semester) to prep for the LA CITY Structural Welding Certification–accepted internationally.

The training are 16 weeks to 32 weeks long (depend on the program) – Begin on Aug 6, 2013

So here is how it works:

Veterans please only pick 1 training not 2 or 3 because these classes will start at the same time.

You will meet with me on July 2, 2013 and the school representatives for the ELIGIBILITY INTERVIEW & ASSESSMENT to see if you meet the minimum requirement to participate in this FREE Short-Term Training program.
