Chevron Richmond programs that provide free training for local residents seeking jobs in the petrochemical industry have earned the company the Education Partner of the Year award from the Diablo Valley charter of the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA).
The Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) had nominated the company earlier this year.
Chevron Richmond funds and runs two entry-level job training programs through the CCCOE’s Regional Occupational Program (ROP): the Process Plant Operator (PPO) program and Industrial Maintenance Mechanic (IMM) program.
The programs create a pipeline for local residents to jobs in the petrochemical industry, and also supply a workforce for the Chevron Richmond refinery.
Both programs offer academic and career skills. See below for more information about what students learn in each program, the length of the courses and other details.
Registration for the programs open in June. Courses begin in August.
