  • Reimbursement of up to 50% of the cost of related formal training, such as workshops and seminars.
  • Trainee assistance with tools and equipment not normally provided by employer.

Incumbent Worker Training: Increasing the skills of existing employees

Incumbent worker training helps qualifying companies upgrade the skills of existing employees to help businesses remain competitive, retain employees and promote from within, increase profits and support new growth.

SkillSource will help businesses cover training costs. The employer’s cost share can be met by paying employee wages during the training. Employees must have 6 or more months of experience working for your company (exceptions apply for trainee cohorts).

Internships and Work Experience

SkillSource places students with businesses for internships or work experience while paying trainee wages. These paid opportunities help career-seekers gain job readiness and occupational skills while giving local businesses extra staff in exchange for mentorship and training. These experiences often result in excellent job candidates for participating businesses.
