The Facts The Inland Empire is home to 5,160 manufacturing firms.
The Facts Manufacturing firms employ over 97,000 people in the region.
The Facts Job growth in the sector across the state added over 15,400 jobs in 2011 led by firms in computers, electronics, metal and machinery product manufacturing the latter two are strongly represented in the Inland Empire.
The Facts $26 and $50 billion Revenue generated by the sector in the region in 2010 was between $26 and $50 billion.
$57,109 Average 2011 sector earnings per worker were $90,935, compared to an average median household income of $57,109 (U.S. Census Quick Facts, 2012).
“Eighty-three percent of the companies indicate a moderate to severe shortage of skilled production workers and 69% of companies expect this shortage to worsen over the next three to five years “Eighty-three percent of the companies indicate a moderate to severe shortage of skilled production workers and 69% of companies expect this shortage to worsen over the next three to five years (Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute, 2011).
Supply and Demand gaps Manufacturing jobs in the Inland Empire are growing, but employers report difficulty in finding qualified employees to fill their job openings.
Supply and Demand gaps Today’s manufacturing operations are technologically advanced and highly efficient resulting in a need to also train incumbent workers to upgrade their skill sets.
Supply and Demand gaps Manufacturing is no longer the tedious, dirty factory work of the past.
Supply and Demand gaps Many functions are now performed by technologically advanced computer systems and robots which require highly technical skills to operate, maintain and repair.
Supply and Demand gaps The changing nature of manufacturing work is making it harder for talent to keep up
Supply and Demand gaps The hardest jobs to fill are those that have the biggest impact on performance. Shortages in skilled production jobs are taking their toll on manufacturers’ ability to expand operations, drive innovation, and improve productivity.

Larry McLaughlin Advanced Transportation & Renewables Sector
SECTOR DESCRIPTION The Advanced Transportation and Renewables Sector represents two industries that are extremely important to the future of California, advanced transportation and renewable energy. The clean energy technologies being developed and marketed in this sector are becoming a critical part of the State’s strategy for reducing our impact on climate as well as growing a green economy. California has always been a world leader in clean energy technologies, but to maintain our leadership, a superior workforce skilled for these rapidly changing technologies must exist. The Chancellor’s Office is working in partnership with community colleges, public schools, private industry, labor, economic development organizations, and workforce development agencies to invest in the growth of this sector. It has identified key talent to bring these stakeholders together and better align CTE programs with industry needs. Ensuring that California has a highly skilled, clean energy workforce is the goal of the Advanced Transportation and Renewables Sector and the focus of its state-level Sector Navigator and Regional Sector Navigators.
DISTRIBUTED & UTILITY-SCALE SOLAR A Centers of Excellence environmental scan titled The Solar Industry & Occupations: Distributed and Utility-scale Generation (February 2012), predicts that solar projects to be built in this region over the next five years will produce 5921 Megawatts of clean electric power. According to the study, about two construction jobs will be created for every planned megawatt in a utility-scale solar project, which totals 11,842 jobs during construction. A study conducted by the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership under contract with COD’s Workforce Innovation Partnerships grant (June 2012), used job creation data gathered from similarly-built utility-scale renewable energy projects across the country to better assess job creation potential of projects planned in the region. The study estimates that 40,000 construction jobs and more than 4,000 permanent positions will be created in San Bernardino, Riverside, and Imperial County.
SMALL-SCALE COMMERCIAL AND RESIDENTIAL SOLAR The Centers for Excellence study mentioned above (February 2012) states that distributed generation is expected see the greatest growth. Nearly 2000 firms specialize in the installation, manufacturing, and distribution of these systems and are expected to add 8,000 to 10,000 new installation jobs by 2015. A report issued from the Governor’s Conference on Local Renewable Energy titled, “California’s Transition to Local Renewable Energy: 12,000 Megawatts By 2020” (June 7, 2012) states that while large energy projects (20 to 1,000 megawatts) are enabling California to make large strides toward the 33 percent Renewable Portfolio Standard goal, “just as important to that effort are the thousands of smaller, local renewable energy systems (1 kilowatt to 20 megawatts) that Californians are building in their communities.”
ATERNATIVE FUEL AND ELECTRIC VEHICLES The City of Riverside was recently named the “Number 1 Government Green Fleet in the United States” at the 2012 Green Fleet Conference. It deploys 550 vehicles operating on compressed natural gas, electricity, or other fuel alternatives. Ryder Trucks announced that it received $38.7 million from the U.S. Dept. of Energy and the California Energy Commission to replace the majority of its local fleet with natural gas vehicles. The Department of Energy awarded $1 million in December to the South Coast Air Quality Management District for the “Community Readiness and Planning for Plug-In Electric Vehicles and Charging Infrastructure” project. The California Energy Commission approved more than $17 million in funding that will be used to support clean transportation projects in the state. Some of these funds will affect fleet operations in the Inland Empire, including CALSTART Inc., $3.52 million. The funds are targeted toward expansion of the California CLEAN Truck Demonstration Program.
UTILITY-SCALE WIND ENERGY Wind energy growth planned in the Tehachapi area and the upgrading of old turbines to new in Palm Springs are creating the need for skilled technicians in our region. The California Independent System Operator Corporation (ISO), the state’s primary operator for its high-voltage network, reported on April 7, 2013 that California’s wind energy production levels reached a new all-time high of 4,196 megawatts (MW).
Utility-scale solar energy Residential and distributed commercial solar energy Heavy and light-duty CNG and LNG vehicles Light-duty electric vehicles and charging systems Energy entrepreneurship Battery/storage systems Renewable and energy efficiency technology interface Wind energy systems Advanced rail and aviation technologies

2.1 Working collaboratively with employers, industry and labor organizations, and Workforce Investment Boards, determine the skill/education levels, certificates, industry-recognized credentials, and appropriate program, course, and delivery strategies needed to align programs with employer needs. 2.2 Form skills panels to review and enhance curriculum, or design new curriculum, based on the need for better program alignment. 2.3 Acquire a national database with California subsets containing advanced transportation and energy industry intelligence to inform curriculum alignment and maximize program enrollment. In addition to company intelligence, project details, contractors, service providers, and executive contacts will be used to expand sector outreach and industry involvement. 2.4 Update the Renewable Energy Labor Forecast (RELF) tool developed by COD and Coachella Valley Economic Partnership under a recent Workforce Innovation Partnership grant.
2.5 Sponsor incumbent worker training for regional college programs involved with sector growth and skill development per SB 1402 in either advanced transportation or renewable energy based on identified needs. 2.6 Collaborating with business and labor partners, and in cooperation with the region’s WIBs, identify and refer contract education opportunities to consortium colleges. The Deputy Sector Navigator will work with consortium colleges to address skill gaps, integrate workforce training and employment, and meet incumbent worker needs. 2.7 Represent the Regional Consortium in a statewide subcommittee consisting of Statewide Sector Navigators and Deputy Sector Navigators, assembled based on funding opportunities and potential for cross-sector collaboration, to review and pursue outside funding
3.1 Work collaboratively with the Statewide Sector navigator, Deans, Chairs and faculty at regional colleges, industry sector and labor representatives, and the regional workforce development agencies to define a system of stackable credentials and concomitant career lattices to clearly define education and training options that will aid with employment and advancement. 3.2 The Deputy Sector Navigator will coordinate with and assist in organizing an energy industry skills panel six months into the grant. This skills panel is planned and scheduled through the CTE Community Collaborative grant previously awarded to San Bernardino colleges. 3.3 The Deputy Sector Navigator will expand an effective partnership model established by the Coachella Valley Economic Partnership (CVEP) and COD/ATTE to other areas of the region. This partnership is successfully integrating career pathway development with data-driven strategies for preparing middle school and high school students for careers in advanced transportation and renewable energy.
3.4 Conduct professional development on advanced transportation and renewable energy science and technology topics for high school teachers in the region. 3.5 Conduct professional development in sector-related career awareness for middle school teachers in the region. 3.6 Conduct professional development for college faculty teaching advanced transportation or renewable energy subjects in the region to update them on developments in the industry sector and provide additions or enhancements to their curriculum.
4.1 Working collaboratively with faculty, Deans, and Chairs with programs related to the industry sector, this project will seek to solve a complex problem, which is serving a dispersed student population within a large geographic region. This activity will seek to fill gaps in content at one institution with the course content of another institution by utilizing distance learning technologies and methods. The goal will be to increase attainment of industry-recognized certificates by providing greater access to community college and high school career technical education programs where interested students are dispersed or in areas that are underserved. 4.2 Serve as a regional workforce systems integrator by leveraging funding to contract with colleges to train incumbent workers in the industry sector. The objective of this training will be to enable workers to become more competitive, increase competency, and facilitate career pathways to economic self-sufficiency through credit, non-credit and contract education. 4.3 Maintain communication and effective partnership relations with businesses, labor organizations, and industry associations to better determine needs and broker a response for technical assistance and incumbent worker training that supports sector economic growth. 4.4 Maintain communication with other deputy sector navigators in region to determine appropriate points for cross-collaboration.
