Wilmington, Calif. – Assemblymember Mike A. Gipson will be presenting a $110 million dollar check to the Port of Los Angeles and Port of Long Beach for a new workforce training center. This ceremony will be held at the Port of LA this Friday, March 24 starting at 10 AM.

This training center will be the first campus in the United States dedicated to the goods movement workforce. This state-of-the-art training facility will serve current and future workers. As the ports continue to transition to zero-emissions cargo handling equipment, workers will need to know how to operate and maintain new technologies. The Campus will train for longshore, trucking, warehousing and logistics occupations. This campus is part of a long term strategy by POLA & POLB to increase the number of career path opportunities across the entire goods movement sector.
