Rep. Napolitano Tours Veterans Occupational Program & Training Center in West Covina
(West Covina, CA) Today, Rep. Grace F. Napolitano (CA-32) visited the East San Gabriel Valley Regional Occupational Program and Technical Center (ROP/TC) in West Covina to learn about how it serves the educational and employment needs of the region’s veterans.
“The ROP/TC is a wonderful resource for San Gabriel Valley residents looking to continue their educational pursuits,” Napolitano said. “Their emphasis on programs and training for our veterans help our heroes make the transition to civilian life and employment smoother. Many local businesses have pledged to hire veterans, so it is critically important that our veterans receive the proper skills and training to fill employment vacancies. We applaud and thank the ROP/TC’s staff for their commitment to serve those who honorably served our nation.”
At the East San Gabriel Valley ROP/TC the VA Certifying Official individually assists veterans with the various training programs and funding options available to them. All courses offered are based on labor market information and upon completion of training, veterans are introduced to local employers who consider veterans first when making hiring decisions. The East San Gabriel Valley ROP/TC is one of 72 in the state of California. It is designed to provide high school and adult students with the technical skills required for particular jobs.
