Training/Capacity Building

~~“The Indiana Department of Workforce Development’s (DWD) employer-driven Skill UP Indiana! Program is about to enter round three. At stake over a two-year period is a pool of up to $20 million in grant funding that is being made available to financially support Innovation Networks to provide more and better avenues for skill-specific training and certification.

“’We often hear from employers who tell us they cannot find qualified candidates to fill open high-wage, high demand positions,’” said Steve Braun, DWD Commissioner. ‘“The goal of Skill UP Indiana! is to encourage regional networks and industry partnerships that meet these employer needs through training, education and certification.’””
