Alliance with Mapei and SBCCD EDCT for more Advanced Skills Training 

San Bernardino Community College District Institute for Economic Development & Coportate Training (SBCCD EDCT) continues their wonderful alliance with Mapei Corporation in offering more training to local companies. Mapei Corporation is a European-based San Bernardino manufacturer of adhesives founded in 1937. The manufacturing company, wanting to give back to the community, reached out to the EDCT department with a desire to better serve their local community with an offer to open their doors to host advanced skills training in their new, beautiful training room. These trainings are not just exclusive to Mapei employees but also open to local companies enrolled in SBCCD’s Employment Training Panel (ETP) Program. 

Mapei has already hosted three EDCT trainings at their site and will graciously continue to open their doors for future trainings.  The first training conducted was a 30-hour Cal OSHA and a 2-hour Safety and Communication trainings, which concluded on Friday, May 17, 2019. A second cohort of 30hr- Cal OSHA 30 and 2-hour Safety and Communication training concluded on Monday, August 26, 2019. Lastly, a 32-hour PHR/SPHR - Professional/Senior Professional Human Resources training began on September 5, 2019. The dates scheduled are for Mondays, September 5, 16, 23, 30, October 7, 14, 28, 2019 from 5:00pm to 9:00pm. 

EDCT is very grateful to Mapei for being so gracious in opening their doors to our regional company partners. Mapei’s generosity has helped SBCCD EDCT continue to provide advanced skills training to incumbent workers. EDCT sends a big thanks to Mapei Corporation and Michelle Cook for their continued support.
