2010-10-11 · By Editor
On October 8, 2010, Comprehensive Training Systems (CTS) announced it will help dislocated workers gain access to jobs in the medical field.
Through a new program called the Allied Healthcare Pathways to Careers, CTS will assist dislocated workers and low-income young adults in receiving an education, training, and career awareness to gain employment in the medical field. The program will assist participants with career exploration, paid externship, job placement, and on-the-job training.
To qualify for the program, candidates must have been terminated/laid off from their previous job within the last 12 months, or be low-income young adults between the ages of 18-21. Eligibility for young adults is determined by their household income.
CTS was recently awarded a grant through the Workforce Funders Collaborative. CTS partnered with local colleges to establish and identify new practices in the healthcare industry and develop career advancement opportunities. These colleges include City College, Mesa College and Southwestern College.
CTS is a non-profit community-based organization serving San Diego’s employment and training needs for 25 years. Located in two strategic areas in the county, Central, and South San Diego, CTS has successfully placed more than 6,000 candidates in employed positions through collaborations with various agencies.
