LAEDC’s Workforce Development team, in partnership with the Los Angeles Regional Consortium, hosted a virtual Aerospace & Defense regional program advisory meeting on March 14th from 11am – 1pm. This was a closed meeting for industry partners and the Los Angeles community college faculty and Deans. 

This meeting examined trends in Aerospace & Defense occupations in Los Angeles and facilitated dialogue with our region’s community colleges regarding programs and certificates. This meeting serves to guide community colleges in their curriculum development and strengthen their position as the leading source of future talent.
