The SCVEDC is committed to spurring workforce training and development to empower our local labor force and help our businesses thrive. A big part of that commitment is our  close partnership with College of the Canyons and their continued efforts to provide high quality training based on current industry needs.




College of the Canyons has launched a brand-new workforce training program that will be available in Summer 2023.  The Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) training program will provide key knowledge, skills and competencies to job seekers so they are able to hit the ground running upon their first day.  This 100-hour program will provide participants with 3 different certifications in Certified Logistics Associate (CLA), Certified Logistics Technician (CLT) and OSHA 10.  Training will take place in person at College of the Canyons and the program will finish in August.


Some of the skills they will learn include:

They are looking for employers interested in hiring directly from this program to participate in a mini job fair for this specific cohort.  Employers are not required to hire anyone but if someone fits your culture and interviews well we hope you consider them.  In addition, there are additional funding opportunities to subsidize the new employees’ wages for a certain period of time.  There will be a short 30min employer orientation on Tuesday, May 9th at 10:00am for interested employers to ask questions and learn more about the program.
