On-the-Job Training

This program can help companies with their hiring costs by providing funds for on-the-job training. New hires may qualify for up to 50% reimbursement of their wages while they are undergoing training. Specific requirements must be met to be eligible for this program, and the contract must be approved and signed before the new hire begins working. Our staff can help answer any questions you may have.

As companies expand, they may need workers with new skills. To help with the cost of training current workers, we offer the incumbent worker training program. This can help companies stay competitive and adapt to changing needs. We can help with a customized training plan to meet a company’s specific requirements.
