San Diego Region Awarded $4 Million Workforce Development Grant to Support Expanding Biofuels Industry
Date:6/29/2010

p>

The San Diego Workforce Partnership is leading efforts to generate interest in the biofuels industry through piloting a strategy to increase awareness, knowledge and experience among job seekers in clean technology.

Since the EDGE Initiative's program curriculum will be heavily reliant on industry participation and input, the San Diego Biofuels Initiative plans to create an Industry Advisory Board that will help guide the program as it develops. Industry partners include the largest clean technology employers in the region -- General Atomics, Synthetic Genomics, Sempra Energy, Sapphire Energy, and Verenium. These partners are committed to facilitating and providing internships, on-the-job training and employment.  

In addition, the funds allocated will assist in the creation, execution and maintenance of several training programs at the post-secondary, undergraduate, graduate and advanced degree levels including:

  • The EDGE Initiative Programs Biofuels Production Certificate
  • Biomass Production Certificate
  • Biofuels Lab Tech Certificate
  • Biofuels Crop Management Certificate
  • Advance training in Biofuels Crop Research
  • Biofuels Immersion Program
  • BioCollaborative Biofuels Web Portal -- designed to connect job seekers with industry
