Alternative and Renewable Fuel
and Vehicle Technology Program:

Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Board, City of Long Beach


Type of organization: Workforce Investment Board.

Type of training: Instruction in the green transportation industry, including heavy-duty trucks and transit vehicles.

Area served: Greater Long Beach area.

Location of training: Long Beach City College and Cypress Community College.

Estimated trainees: 210

Instruction details:Classes cover these areas for interest:

  • Heavy-Duty Hybrid
  • Alternative Fuels – Liquid Natural Gas (LNG)/Compressed Natural Gas (CNG)
  • Heavy-Duty Hybrid
  • Electrical Systems Diagnosis

The tight mandates of the South Coast Air Quality Management District's (SCAQMD) efforts to address greenhouse gas emissions and the Clean Air Action Plan adopted by the Ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles are driving major changes in the use of heavy-duty trucks and transit vehicles that travel through this region. A well-trained workforce must understand the differences and safety issues of the new LNG/CNG and gasoline-hybrid engine technology.

Result of classes: Graduates will be well equipped with the requisite skills to apply for positions within the clean transportation industry.

More about the organization: The Pacific Gateway Workforce Investment Network and Long Beach Community College District are partnering in delivering this program because the clean transportation economy operates on a regional scale rather than by local jurisdiction, which requires a complimentary approach utilizing the combined resources of the partnership to increase the likelihood of success for the partner organizations and the communities they serve. Key employer partners include Long Beach and Orange County Transits and the Port of Long Beach.
