El Camino College is set to receive nearly $1 million to train more people for the workforce.

The college’s Centers for Applied Competitive Technologies secured money for employment training funds for manufacturing workforce programs. The grant will be used to train more than 1,000 workers in California. The center is one of six centers for applied competitive technologies in California that offer college-approved curriculum and workforce training.

The grant is one of 28 contracts worth more than $13.4 million in job training funds approved by the state’s employment training panel. The areas of focus include renewable fuel and vehicle technology job training funds.

The CACT program meets the needs of both large and small employers.
