Are you maximizing your opportunities for employee training, and the opportunity to get reimbursed? The state of Florida provides ample funding to make employee training possible!
-Three million dollars are available from the State of Florida to reimburse for-profits 50% of up to $100,000 of training, coaching and consulting costs.
-The fiscal year begins July 1, so this is the perfect time to apply. The forms are available at http://careersourceflorida.com/employer-training-grants/
-The IWT application (Incumbent Worker Training for skills upgrades) is simple and easy to complete. Any for-profit firm in FL can apply for funding. Funds will run out quickly, so time is of the essence. You may want to consider all the other training your employees need at the same time, as you can only apply once in a 12-18 mo. period.
