Abstract

This report, the fifth in a series of six prepared as part of the Critical Path Analysis project, is an analysis of self-supported workforce training pathways, which are not currently encompassed by data collected on state-funded programs. The study focuses on the contribution of self-funded community college, CSU and UC training and certificate programs to high-tech workforce development. The research, while preliminary, suggests that non-state funded programs represent a significant contribution to the manpower development activities of the state.
