The funding helps support new training equipment, including vehicles and testing equipment, as well as the development of new programs and curricula. This effort will increase the number of individuals certified to build, repair, and maintain alternative fuel vehicles for California’s growing clean vehicle market.
Many of the training programs supported by the grant serve disadvantaged and low-income communities and offer dual enrollment opportunities to high school juniors and seniors, giving them a head start on a pathway to a job with a livable wage. Many programs also offer alternative fuels technology education to those already in the automotive industry.
