The City of Torrance requires that all residents interested in serving on a commission or certain committees be certified through the City of Torrance Commissioner Certification Training Program. This program was developed to prepare prospective candidates in the roles, responsibilities, and requirements of commission service.
If you are interested in serving as a Commissioner or Committee member, it is required you attend one of the City's training sessions. The program is a two-hour training class hosted by City staff at the Torrance Civic Center and the certificate is valid for two (2) years. There is no charge for this training, however, reservations are required in order to provide you with materials.
The next certification training class will be held on Thursday, October 17, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Katy Geissert Civic Center Library Meeting Room.
Please register for the class here by midnight on Friday, October 11, 2019. Your registration is complete when you receive a confirmation email.
