  2. California Labor and Workforce Development Agency (CLDWA) Announces Record Number of Apprentices; Targets 100,000 Active Apprentices By The End Of 2020

    • CLDWA Secretary David M. Lanier has announced that there are nearly 82,000 active apprentices in California – the highest number in the 79-year history of formal apprenticeship job training in the state. In 2015, California had approximately 53,000 active apprentices and is on track to double the number by the end of 2020. The Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017 – which invests $52.4 billion over the next 10 years to fix roads, freeways and bridges throughout the state and improve public transportation – includes $5 million per year for five years to expand pre-apprenticeship training programs. These programs provide at-risk youth, women, veterans and the formerly incarcerated with training in the construction trades. The job training proposal in the transportation package builds on the California Workforce Development Board’s successful efforts in Proposition 39 pre-apprenticeship training pilots, called the High Road Construction Careers program. Since 2014, this program has trained more than 1,100 at-risk youth, veterans and other disadvantaged job seekers in construction and green job skills through regional partnerships of building trades councils, workforce boards, community colleges, schools and community organizations.
