Specialized and Customized Training (Contract Education)

The specialized and customized training needs of business, industry, and public and private agencies are served by the district’s contract education efforts. These efforts are managed by the Extended Campus and headquartered at the Lompoc Valley Center. In the last five years the college has trained 1,396 employees from 44 companies and 19 public agencies. Trainees during this period came from 16 different U.S. states and 12 foreign countries to participate in a number of diverse seminars, mainly those designed for the oil and gas industry.

 Safety seminars offered to employees of upstream, midstream, and downstream energy companies across the United States and the world have included Benzene Safety Awareness; Cal Ops Site Orientation for ExxonMobil (modules covered are Work Management Systems (WMS), Working at Heights (WAH), Job Safety Analysis (JSA), and SEMS II); EMS Safety Services First Aid, CPR & AED; Fire Behavior Level III: Flammable and Combustible Liquids; Lithium Ion Battery Safety Awareness; and Respiratory Protection and QNFT Fit Testing.

 The college also provides Petroleum Education Council (PEC) accredited courses in SafeLandUSA and SafeGulf and the 4-hour H2S safety training called H2S Clear designed to meet the most comprehensive standards for H2S (American National Standards Institute (ANSI) 390), as well as the new ANSI requirements coming out in 2016.

 Training seminars for First Responders have included Arrest and Control (ARCON); Collision Avoidance; Emergency Vehicle Operations Course (EVOC); Firearms-Tactical Rifle; Force Options Simulator (FOS); and Law Enforcement Driving Simulator (LEDS).

 In 2015 the college entered into a contract with the U.S. Department of Justice to provide a highly successful welding program at the United States Penitentiary in Lompoc. The first cohort completed this program in February, 2016 and it now serves as a model education program for prisons throughout the United States.
