WASHINGTON, -  Today, The Manufacturing Institute released the second Community College Consortium for Bioscience Credentials (c3bc) spotlight on Los Angeles Valley College (LAVC). This is the second of five best practices that the Institute will release over the next several months.

The c3bc is a multistate consortium of 12 community colleges engaged in an educational and training initiative funded by the U.S. Department of Labor under grant TC- 23761-12-60-A-37. Under the c3bc, 12 Community Colleges nationwide coordinate to support strategies to assist grant participants to obtain employment in high-wage, high-skill occupations, such as biotechnology, biomanufacturing, and medical devices.

As part of the Community College Consortium for Bioscience Credentials (c3bc), LAVC developed its Biotech Bridge Training program to build a pipeline of talent to fill open manufacturing technician positions. The training program is a six-week program designed to help students develop a much-needed set of core skills and competencies targeted specifically for the bioscience industry. From the program, students receive employability skills, resume and interview preparation, contextualized math and science, and a guaranteed interview upon completing the courses.
