We are proud to announce that The South Bay Workforce Investment Board presented an "Outstanding Achievement" award to Los Angeles Valley College Job Training for the LA Fellows program recently at their 19th annual Alumni Awards Breakfast. The ceremony was held October 23rd at the Ayres Hotel in Hawthorne. The annual event honors recent alumni who have completed technical training in a variety of fields as well as the corporations that provided jobs and a variety of institutions and agencies (like LAVC Job Training and LA Fellows) that provided the training that was funded by grants made possible by the SBWIB. More than 300 civic leaders, elected officials, job providers and training institution representatives were in attendance.
LAVC Job Training also garnered awards for its Microsoft Academy, Manufacturing Academy, Human Resources assistant Academy and Customer Service programs.
