Barstow College selected to participate in technical education program

Barstow Community College has been selected out of 10 community colleges to participate in the California Advanced Defense Ecosystems & National Consortia Effort.

CADENCE is a part of a larger statewide project aimed to help seek a qualified workforce to assist with Department of Defense projects by focusing on local Career & Technical Education and economic growth in their local community.

Funding for the CADENCE project comes from a $275,000 grant received by The Centers for Applied Competitive Technologies.

“The CADENCE Project signals the start of a defense manufacturing movement for Barstow Community College,” said Dean of Instruction, Workforce & Economic Development Dr. Crystal Nasio. “Our hope is that BCC will be seen as the premier training center for outstanding tradespeople. We are looking forward to future growth.”

The grant funds will allow CACT to provide experiential learning opportunities for college faculty externships at identified California defense supply chain or manufacturing companies.
