In an effort to raise awareness of the many training opportunities available to community members who are looking for a job, want to find a new career or update their skills, or will soon graduate from high school, Laney College will present its Career and Technical Expo 2012 on Saturday, April 28, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on its Oakland campus, located at 900 Fallon Street, in and around Building G.

More than a dozen hands-on demonstrations of Laney’s many programs will be presented onsite, including machine technology, welding, biomanufacturing, green jobs training, architecture and engineering, carpentry, photography, and cosmetology. Attendees will have a chance to talk to instructors about their programs and to meet with college staff about registration and financial aid. In addition, Laney’s business partners from local industry will be available to talk about job opportunities. All participants will be treated to a complimentary lunch.

“Through this event, we hope to show the community the many excellent programs we offer that can lead to in-demand occupations and to show employers where they can send their workers to upgrade their skills,” says Louis Quindlen, department chair of machine technology and coordinator of the event. “There is a high demand for skilled workers in many occupations, and Laney is one of the best programs in the region to find that training.”

    This is great that more schools are starting to take notice about more technical career paths that have a lot of job opportunities. I am attempting to finish up trade school this years and complete my welding certification. Great posting!
