Chippewa Valley Technical College (CVTC) is now accepting applications for the State of Wisconsin Workforce Advancement Training grants. These grants are open to businesses that are looking at bringing in specific training into their company between July 1, 2012, and June 30, 2013, and partnering with CVTC with that training.
Grants through this program are awarded to promote increased investment in the development of incumbent workers, improve Wisconsin business productivity and competitiveness and augment the state’s economic base by expanding technical college training services to business and industry. Grants will be awarded to upgrade the skills and productivity of employees of established, for-profit businesses operating in Wisconsin, with the broader objective of supporting regional workforce and economic development efforts. The training can include any combination of academic, occupational and employability topics or courses.
Request for consideration forms must be completed and received by a CVTC representative no later than March 30, 2012, for consideration. Interested employers are asked to complete the Request for Consideration Application found on the CVTC Business and Industry website.
