Wasco State Prison-Reception Center recently saw 17 inmates graduate a job safety course.
The class, offered by Westside Energy Services Training and Education Center (WESTEC), is taught over three weeks, eight hours per day. Participants received safety certificates in various topics from general industry to CPR.
“Officer Lundy is to be commended for his help and professionalism in this process,” said Principal Matthew Koop. “His correctional oversight and record keeping helped make our first ‘Train For Success’ session a success. WESTEC instructors … provided a solid training and a great opportunity for our students to find gainful employment.”
