Targeted Industry Training

Are you anticipating growth within your company (or industry) that will require you to fill multiple skilled positions? Using grant funds, we can support class-sized training for in-demand industries and occupations. Through collaboration with our educational partners and employers, we can develop a tailored class to address specific skill needs and train a pipeline of prospective employees.

An example of targeted industry training is a 5 week, customized and intensive welding program that offers trainees welding certification, workplace skills building, and employment opportunity upon successful completion of the program. For our training candidates, we incorporate prescreening and assessment, thus ensuring the most successful outcomes.

On-the-Job Training

We also have grant funding available to support individual hires in experience-based and/or classroom-based, on-the-job training (OJT) through a short-term wage subsidy. This option allows you to train prospective employees to meet the specific skill requirements of your organization – and save money in the process. Learn  more.
