Participation in the Training Programs

All students who intend to participate in a Pre-Apprenticeship, Registered Apprenticeship, Welding, or Computer Skills for the Workplace training program must complete the following procedures.

Step 1: Fill out the online application. This will take around 30 minutes to complete. Before you begin, make sure you have enough time to complete the application.

Step 2: Attend a required information session. You will be required to complete a reading and math assessment and an interview with an InTech staff member during this session. Please visit the General Information section of the online application for dates and hours for forthcoming information sessions.

Step 3: Wait for financing clearance before receiving your acceptance letter through email.

Step 4: Submit your right to work paperwork, immunization records, and a letter of selected service (males, if applicable).

Please keep in mind that all students are vaccinated.

In another instance, Chaffey College InTech Center won a two-year $881K contract from Californiaโ€™s Employment Training Panel (ETP). I reported in December last year that Chaffey College InTech Center at Cherry Ave, Fontana, CA, will provide workforce development training to companies in the Inland Empire to support job creation and retention.

To financially support this program, Californiaโ€™s Employment Training Panel (ETP) will give $881K to Chaffey Collegeโ€™s InTech Center. The program is performance-based, providing funds for trainees who successfully complete training and are retained in well-paying jobs for a specific period of time.
