LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — A limited number of tickets were released Tuesday to see President Barack Obama speak later this week at the Los Angeles Trade-Technical College.

The free tickets for the Thursday speech were released at 8:30 a.m. on a first-come, first-serve basis.

It was unclear how many tickets were handed out.

Obama will speak at the college at 1:15 p.m. Thursday, focusing on the “importance of job-driven skills training, particularly for fast-growing sectors such as health care,” according to the White House.


The President will land in the Southland Wednesday afternoon as part of a three-day fundraising tour on the West Coast.

The trip will be Obama’s 19th to Los Angeles or Orange counties since taking office in 2009 and the third in three months.
