The California Lab Sciences Career Project (CLSCP) is increasing the numbers of qualified workers available to the Healthcare, Diagnostic, Biomedical and Biotech industries in California. Our program targets one of the state’s most critical workforce bottlenecks for these sectors by establishing a well coordinated training-to-employment pipeline for licensed laboratory professionals. Outreach and recruiting efforts will reach tens of thousands of individuals with 200 program participants receiving training that will lead to California licensure. 

This project has three areas of focus:

- Outreach and Career Awareness targeted at high schools, colleges and military veterans.

- Development of programs increasing the number of licensed lab professionals.

- Expansion of existing programs to meet current and future workforce demand.

The CLSCP has engaged a wide range of partners to ensure its success including the California State University, University of California and Community College systems, regional Workforce Investment Boards, healthcare and biotechnology employers (large and small) and trade organizations.
