Green Workforce Education Website

Welcome to the Green Workforce Education website within the Division of Workforce and Economic Development at Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.

In fall 2006, Los Angeles Trade-Technical College’s College Council approved the adoption of a Green College Initiative which is comprised of four, focused activity areas:  green built environment, clean and green campus, public awareness, and green education and training programs.

It is this fourth, activity area—green education and training—that the Green Workforce Education website is focused on.
