ETP Funding: $580,000
KLA won another workforce training contract worth $580,000 from the State of California’s Employment Training Panel (ETP) on Friday, October 18, 2013 in Sacramento.
This proposal, under Alternative and Renewable Fuel and Vehicle Technology Program (AB118), is designed to allow KLA to focus on job skills to invent, develop, design, construct, install, operate, service and maintain new fueling infrastructure for electric vehicles in support of the long-term reduction of carbon emissions. The AB118 Program is administered by ETP in partnership with the CEC and the overall goals to support a transition from petroleum-based transportation to alternative and renewable fuels and clean, low carbon vehicle technologies. Alternative Fuel is defined as any fuel other than the traditional selections, gasoline and diesel from petroleum sources, used to produce energy or power. Examples of alternative fuels are: bio-diesel, ethanol, methanol, electricity, propane, compressed or liquid natural gas, and hydrogen. The funds will subsidize direct employee training cost for KLA sponsored courses delivered to California employees via classroom, laboratory and/or on-line delivery methodologies. The monies provided by ETP will help KLA leverage the experience and capabilities of its employees through learning while expanding California’s growing clean tech industry.
