Education & Workforce Development Partners
Chabot-Las Positas Community College District
The Tri-Valley Career Center (TVCC) is a service of the Chabot-Las Positas Community College District (CLPCCD) and is housed in the district’s Economic Development-Contract Education Department. The department also includes OSHA Training Center, Apprenticeships, Contract Education and Title 4E, which gives our job seekers and college student’s additional access to training and career guidance opportunities.
Both Chabot College in Hayward and Las Positas College in Livermore have transfer agreements with four-year colleges/universities; offer career and technical education (CTE) certificates; and life-long learning opportunities for building skills. Coursework challenges students to think critically, engage socially, and acquire workplace knowledge and skills. Between the two Colleges, there are 68 Associate of Arts degrees, 18 Associate of Arts Transfer degrees, 39 Associate of Science degrees, 7 Associate of Science Transfer degrees, and over 100 certificate programs. Visit both campus websites to learn more about their unique opportunities at Chabot College, Las Positas College.
In addition, CLPCCD offers easy referral to certificates at both colleges through its Year to Career initiative. This highlights the programs at each college and the OSHA Training Institute that offer an industry-recognized certificate within one year of classes. More information can be found here: Year to Career.
Applications to both colleges can be found on the state chancellor’s website at CCCApply.
Alameda County Workforce Development Board (ACWDB)
The Tri-Valley Career Center is partially funded through the ACWDB, which aims to build a better workforce by linking employers, job seekers and youth to education, training and employment related programs and services. The ACWDB is one of four such boards in the East Bay region and covers all of Alameda County, with the exception of Oakland. Its board members represent the business community, higher education, economic development, labor, government, and community-based organizations and are appointed by the Alameda County Board of Supervisors.

Alameda County-Oakland Community Action Partnership (AC-OCAP)
AC-OCAP has funded TVCC for the last several years to serve residents of the Tri-Valley who have specific barriers to achieving self-sufficiency.
AC-OCAP has been committed to reducing poverty by providing services and programs targeted to low-income individuals and families since 1971. It is part of a broad national and statewide network—all working to eliminate poverty on a local and national level. CAP involves local citizens in its effort to address specific barriers to achieving self-sufficiency.
