Workforce Training

Make an Investment in Your Employees Today

The most important investment a company can make is in their employees. The customizable Workforce Training programs offered by the College of Professional and Continuing Education (CPaCE) at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) provide employees with the latest knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques that can increase productivity and professionalism.

CSULB is not just a training and education provider, but a business partner and resource center that creates solutions with access to a world-class university and distinguished professionals. Our training sessions are led by faculty and/or top industry experts, designed and delivered with your organization’s specific culture, goals, objectives, and timeline in mind. Programs are offered on campus at CSULB, at your company’s facilities, online, or via a mixture of flexible options.

Whether you have a business, government agency, or nonprofit in the greater Long Beach area and Southern California region, Workforce Training focuses on personalized customer service for each client and provides training that results in positive measurable outcomes.

As part of our commitment to upgrade the skills of your employees through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), we partner with local Workforce Development Boards whenever possible to provide Employer Training Panel (ETP) funds that can help offset the cost of our training programs.
