Customized Job Training (CJT)

The CJT program provides grant funds for the development and implementation of employer specific job training initiatives. Funds are used to support the development of training that is intended to improve production efficiencies and enhance a company’s competitive position. Grant funds can be provided on a matching basis for the preservation and upgrading of jobs that would otherwise be lost.

Guaranteed Free Training Program (also known as WEDnetPA)

Qualified companies receive free job training, which is provided through the Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania, known as WEDnetPA.  Through the Guaranteed Free Training Program, businesses can access funding for a wide range of Basic Skills Training and Information Technology Training.
