The Tri-City Workforce Training Resource is an informational website for adults who need to obtain their GED, as well as those beginning or already established in their career. Visit Fremont WorkForce Training to explore the many options for short-term, low-cost educational and training opportunities located right here in the Tri-City Area.
Since Post-Secondary Education is not just a four-year degree, a variety of training opportunities for adults at different points in their careers are included. The site provides information on GED, English as a Second Language, and Basic Skills classes available through local Adult Schools. Entry-level trainings with opportunities for career growth are available at Fremont Adult School for Medical Assistants, Mission Valley ROP for Pharmacy Technician training, or participate in the Pre-Apprenticeship Construction Program through Cypress Mandela, to name just a few. Adults with advanced degrees and professional experience can increase their skills with Cal State East Bay’s Certificate and Continuing Education program. The new workforce training site also includes information on ways to pay for classes, starting a small business, growth industries, and labor market information.
The Tri-City Workforce Training Resource is a product of the Southern Alameda County Workforce Development Project, a research project for the City of Fremont Human Services Department, the Fremont Family Resource Center, and the SparkPoint Fremont program. The data from this project suggest more can be done to increase awareness and access to local training and educational opportunities in our community. To address the data, the Tri-City Workforce Training Resource was created to connect community members to short-term training and educational opportunities leading to livable wage jobs. The Tri-City Workforce Training Resource is a navigational tool to access training and educational options in the local area, while also providing links and other resources available in the Greater Bay Area.
The Southern Alameda County Workforce Development Project is supported through the generous funding from the Y&H Soda Foundation and the Walter & Elise Haas Fund.
