The State of North Carolina has pioneered in free customized job training for new and expanding businesses since 1958.
It continues the tradition of helping businesses maintain their competitive edge through the North Carolina Community College system and their customized training and development services.
Eligibility for new and expanding industry training services is determined on a company by company basis. The services provided are based in the number of new jobs created, their skill and wage levels, and the level of total capital investment.
Training services provided to these companies may include instructors and training program development, customized video training programs, temporary training facilities, equipment, and supplies. Companies benefit from tailor made programs that support their specific needs for a skilled workforce.
The program makes instructors available at no expense to eligible new and expanding companies. If a company employee is used as an instructor for specialized training, the program can offset the cost of instructor wages, "Train the Trainer" expenses and travel costs. If a company is not equipped to handle training on-site, employees may use facilities at Mayland Community College at no expense.
