If you need training but lack the budget for it,
SC Works Trident may be able to assist through the Incumbent Worker Training Program!
Incumbent Worker Training Assistance (IWT) is being made available under provisions of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act. The IWT Program provides funds to assist employers in training currently employed workers in an effort to keep businesses and workers competitive in the workforce. Employers who are in need of training for incumbent workers due to expansion and changing skill requirements caused by new technology, retooling, new product lines, and new organization restructuring may be eligible for IWT assistance.
Information sessions will be held on October 9th, 2015 from 9:30 AM – 11:30 AM and again from
1 PM to 3 PM at the SC Works Charleston Center located at 1930 Hanahan Road North Charleston, SC 29406. The sessions are identical and are held at two different times to better accommodate businesses. The sessions will provide more detail on the application process but attendance is not a requirement.
Contact Sharon Goss, Interim Workforce Development Director, SC Works Trident, for more information and/or to obtain an application at (843) 529-0400 or via email at SharonG@bcdcog.com
