Classwork will consist of lectures, small group projects, discussion groups, and an original project at the end of the program that demonstrates competencies in the areas of the Workforce Development.

“One of the key aspects of this program is that seasoned as well as new staff are gaining the ability to ‘connect the dots’ on the workforce industry,” Lanter explained, “learning how workforce boards and America’s Job Centers of California were created, learning key techniques to improve their jobs, as well as leadership, project management, presentation and facilitation skills that make them better employees.” – Bob Lanter (pictured above), co-creator & instructor in the Workforce Development Professional Apprenticeship Program & the Executive Director of the California Workforce Association (CWA)
