Tuition-Free Training Opportunities for Manufacturing Employees

A new $2.7 million federal grant is helping manufacturing businesses across Washington pay for worker training at nearly no cost.

The U.S. Department of Labor is paying for the training to boost the skills of those who work at small and mid-sized manufacturers in rural areas.

All training is online and aimed at boosting staff productivity in even the most remote places, where enhancing employee skills is critical, but difficult.

Manufacturers can also qualify for a business asssessment to plan for improvement and growth, through Impact Washington.

Find out how your business can benefit. Contact Mike Brennan today at (360) 709-4616.

With the Make It In Washington grant, your employees receive:

  1. Online training.
  2. Technical certification.
  3. College-level classes...no matter what their education level, or where they live!

What’s in it for you and your business?
