Looking to upskill your employees in tech?

The Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board (NRWIB) is currently accepting applications for a program called TechHire Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) Program.

The program will pay up to $2,000 per employee to take an approved IT course.  Think coding, web design, project management…

Consider that investing in your employee’s IT skills helps Connecticut’s Workforce.

The purpose of the Incumbent Worker Training Program is to provide businesses with the resources to invest in the state’s workforce, improve IT employee skills and maintain the economic strength and viability of the region’s businesses. The project’s major focus is on businesses that would not be able to make this investment without the assistance of the fund.

Qualify in advance.

To qualify to participate in the TechHire program the employee must be on a W4 and you will have to complete an application.  TechHire is looking for the following:

  • Training projects in the Information Technology sector, that will result in demonstrated job retention, job growth or increased wages
  • Training projects that will make a difference in the company’s productivity, competitiveness and ability to do business in Connecticut

Act now!  Opportunity available until the funding runs out.

Completed proposals/applications from employers will be accepted on a rolling basis until the funds under this grant program have been disbursed.
