ATRE Community College Alternative Fuel and Vehicle Technology Training Enhancement Program
May 1, 2017
In August, 2016 the Advanced Transportation and Renewable Energy Sector released a competitive solicitation awarding a total of $1.6 million to address the regional workforce technical training needs for workers who will be employed by fleets, dealerships, independent shops and similar organizations.
This initial round of funding from the California Energy Commission was awarded to the following colleges looking to enhance their alternative fuel and vehicle technical training programs:
American River College
City College of San Francisco
College of the Desert
Rio Hondo College
San Diego Miramar College
In a second round of funding, the Energy Commission awarded a total of $1 million to six colleges that originally applied for the funding opportunity:
Copper Mountain College
Foothill-De Anza CCD
Los Angeles Trade-Tech College
Victor Valley College
All 15 funded colleges have a demonstrated need for program and course enhancements in their regions. Over the next year, they will execute carefully-designed plans to train students, create curriculum, purchase equipment, and educate faculty on the latest industry technologies.
