Helps businesses design and implement training that meets their specific needs, the fund also provides financial help to employers through two programs:

Train the Trainer: Reimburses companies for limited travel costs associated with training employees in a specialty not offered by a local community college, provided that employee then trains others at the company in that specialty area.

Customized Industry-Based Training: Assists companies in securing a training provider when a college does  not provide the training.
