The Don Knabe Energy Pathway Program (EPP)
The Don Knabe Energy Pathway Program (EPP) spearheads career development in the industrial sector. In partnership with a Coastline Community College, Phillips66, PBF Energy, ExxonMobil, Chevron, Tesoro, World Oil, General Mills, Los Angeles Sanitation Districts, United Way, and many others, EPP proves to be a valuable asset and resource for companies looking for capable and knowledgeable candidates to fill their workforce needs. For the past ten years we have continued to partner with local, low-income residents and veterans to develop qualified candidates through an industry-tailored program that provides entry level education and training in process systems, technology and safety, with emphasis in petrochemical and wastewater treatment. As a part of our evolving curriculum, instruction includes classes in, but are not limited to, petroleum technology, wastewater treatment, process control, systems and operations and quality management. Additionally, EPP offers industry-specific professional-development workshops, industry test prep, in-class program support and employment soft-skills development opportunities to program participants. All EPP graduates receive certification in Process Technology from Coastline Community College.
