The Don Knabe Energy Pathway Program (DKEPP) spearheads career development in the industrial sector in partnership with Coastline Community College, Phillips66, Torrence Refining Company, Chevron, Andeavor, USW Local 675, World Oil Refining, World Oil Recycling, General Mills, Los Angeles Sanitation Districts, and the United Way of Greater Los Angeles.


The Don Knabe EPP has proven itself as a valuable regional asset and resource for companies looking for capable and knowledgeable candidates to fill their workforce needs. For the past ten years we have partnered with local industry and 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 part of our evolving curriculum, the Don Knabe Energy Pathway Program incorporates classes that include (but are not limited to): petroleum technology, wastewater treatment, process control, systems and operations and quality management. 


SBCC's Energy Pathway Program also 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 a certificate in Process Technology from Coastline Community College upon completion of the program.


Recruitment for the 2018 cohort begins in August of 2017.
