What Kind Of Training Is Allowable?

The Workforce Training Fund imposes few restrictions on training. What is taught, how it is taught, and when it is taught is up to the employer. There are no rigid standards for subject matter or hours of instruction. The duration of training may be up to two years. Training may be provided by in­house expert trainers or external vendors.

Allowable training costs include those expenses that will occur during the course of the training grant period. Funds can be used to pay for the cost of training, but not for the costs of certification following the training. They may include costs for training providers, curriculum development, tuition, and supplies and equipment used for the training.
