This event grew from Metro’s idea to tap into the skills that veterans acquire during military service. “Veterans return with a lot of skills (Metro) supervisors use,” said Lennie Ciufo, Director of Job Training for Valley College.
The training program for veterans who advance beyond the pre-screening will include more skills training than the usual Bridge Program training, which began in August 2006. The training takes two weeks or approximately 45 hours.
Veterans attending should bring a California driver’s license, documents proving their right to work and a driver’s record from the Department of Motor Vehicles or an H-6 printout. The process takes around three hours.
Metro employs 4,200 full and part-time bus and train operators. For more information on the program, contact the Los Angeles Valley College, Professional Media Resource Center at (818) 947-2941
