Communications Workers of America Partners for Apprenticeship Program with Chabot-Las Positas Community College District | Community News

The Communications Workers of America (CWA), in partnership with the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District, received a $5.8 million grant to expand an apprenticeship training program for fiber optic technicians at its center in training in San Jose and three additional locations across California.

The U.S. Department of Labor grant comes as California moves to allocate more than $5 billion to a state-owned fiber optic network and subsidies to local providers for last-mile broadband connections to homes, businesses and community institutions.
