If you’re a student or seeking a career change, you’re in the right place at the right time. California’s Advanced Energy sector is creating 15,000 jobs annually, many starting at $40,000 per year with career progression to more than $100,000.
In April 2017, LATTC’s team of students (and their supporting faculty) were at the California Skills USA State Competition in San Diego. Skills USA is a partnership of students, teachers, and industry working together to ensure America has a skilled workforce. The Skills USA Championships are competitive events showcasing the best career and technical education students in the nation. Contests begin locally and continue through the state and national levels. At the SKILLS USA State Competition in San Diego, 29 LATTC student competitors from Energy, Construction, and Utilities Sector programs competed and walked away with medals!

PICTURE YOURSELF IN AN ADVANCED ENERGY CAREER
The work is exciting. From Environmental Controls in commercial buildings to Smart Grid, these jobs are on the cutting edge of technology. The skills needed in these career fields are transferable to many other growth industries. Typically, a community college technical certificate is all you need to launch your new high-wage career.
Growth equals opportunity. Advanced energy is a nearly $1.3 trillion global industry, larger than the apparel and airline industries. The U.S. advanced energy market is up 14% since 2013, five times the growth rate of the U.S. economy overall.
California leads Climate Change action. Advanced energy happens here first, from new technology development in Silicon Valley to state policies that will reduce California’s greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020.
