Engineering Program Established for Veterans
Date:7/21/2014

Livermore, California (PRWEB) July 21, 2014

Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Alameda County Workforce Investment Board (WIB) and Las Positas College (LPC) recently established a 24-month academic program to provide technical education and hands-on training for veterans, officials recently announced.

The new Engineering Technology Program at Las Positas is designed to help veterans develop the skills and training needed for engineering technician careers, and establishes a pipeline of qualified candidates for LLNL and other Bay Area employers such as NASA and Sandia and Lawrence Berkeley national laboratories.

Up to 30 veterans are expected to enroll in the program when coursework begins at LPC in the fall. Some of them have started the summer internship portion of the program at Lawrence Livermore.

"This program is a win-win situation for both the veterans who have passionately served our nation and employers such as Lawrence Livermore who want to hire vets and need a pipeline of qualified technicians," said Beth McCormick, an LLNL Strategic Human Resources Management manager, who helped create the program.

Randy Pico, LLNL Engineering Directorate's senior superintendent, said he wanted to create a strong local pathway for veterans interested in mechanical engineering technology that would include worksite activities, tours, job shadowing, on-site training, mentoring and learning activities.
