Never before has it been so critical to compete in today's global market. Technology has infused every aspect of manufacturing in the United States — from design and production to inventory management, delivery and service. Today's manufacturing jobs are technology jobs, and employees at all levels must have a wide range of skills to respond to the demands within this increasingly complex environment.
Advanced technology companies need a partner, now more than ever, in their business — an organization that can respond with workforce training and technical solutions in a globally competitive market.
An initiative of the California Community College's Economic and Workforce Development (CCCEWD) program, the Centers for Applied Competitive Technologies (CACT) are dedicated to serving California's advanced technology companies with innovative business solutions. We are an integral part of the California Community Colleges and its Doing What Matters campaign, investing funding and resources in industry sectors that are key to California’s economic growth. Our industry-specific workforce services are coordinated through a system of sector specialists that align community college and other workforce development resources with the needs of industry sectors and occupational clusters through a regional focus.
