With the enormous levels of funding from the passage of Proposition 51 and local general obligation bonds, the number of school facilities projects that will be planned and constructed will be at historic levels. To assist the school facilities community in preparing to plan, finance, and construct these projects, the CASH Board has initiated the Regional Training Course Series, a comprehensive training program addressing school facilities that will be offered in select regions of California in 2017. The first region is Kern County, where the first of the three-course series will start on March 3, 2017. Future series will be held on the Central Coast and in the Imperial County/San Diego regions.
This Training Course Series is not a collection of independent workshops but rather three consecutive sessions designed to provide a condensed, in-depth course in school facilities for practitioners in school districts and those in the private sector who serve school districts. Participants will gain a practical understanding of school planning, financing, construction, and maintenance. Private sector participants invited to register include architects, planners, inspectors, construction managers, contractors and others directly involved in assisting school districts.
This three-part course will be offered on one Friday of each month (see below). Participants are expected to attend all three sessions for the full-day of each course. This allows for 6 hours of learning, plus one-hour for lunch and breaks. No homework or projects will be required; however, at the conclusion of the program, each participant will be expected to produce, for their own use, an application of knowledge gained that will benefit their district or clientele. Training materials will be sent electronically to participants in advance of each session. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the conclusion of the series.
The Core Faculty will consist of expert practitioners in the field of K-12 school infrastructure. Additionally, ancillary faculty and guest speakers will offer support to the course.
Course Dates & Times: March 3; April 21; May 12
Registration opens at 7:30 a.m. All sessions will be held from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Participants are required to attend all three sessions for the full time allotted in order to receive a certificate of completion.
