More than 30 students attended first orientation to CalCIMA Employment Bridge Training Program Pilot Project

For the past year, the California Construction and Industrial Materials Association (CalCIMA) and its network of members and employers have been working with California's Community Colleges to develop "industry-recognized" training programs as an overall talent pipeline and workforce strategy for the future. The San Bernardino Community College District is the first to offer the new CalCIMA pilot training programs.

The 48-hour Employment Bridge training program was developed in partnership with the California Construction and Industrial Materials Association (CalCIMA), CalCIMA member companies, College of the Desert and San Bernardino Community College District(SBCCD).

The program is for currently enrolled students in their final semester of Diesel Mechanic, Auto Technician, Industrial Maintenance, Welding, Construction Management, Truck Driver, Equipment Operator and related programs.

On September 20, 2019, more than 30 students attended the orientation program for the first employment bridge training.
