A unique benefit only found in Iowa, the Iowa New Jobs Training Program was developed to assist businesses that are creating new jobs. If your business is expanding Iowa operations or locating a new facility in the state, the New Jobs Training Program can provide flexible funding to meet the wide variety of training and employee development needs of your new employees. The assistance available includes funds for screening and assessment, reimbursement of wages/salaries of new employees, travel for training purposes, in-plant instruction, costs of training facilities, equipment, and supplies, etc.
This Iowa Jobs Training Program invests in customized training to upgrade the skills of existing employees. Funding is done through a forgivable loan. Forgiveness is dependent upon your business following a training plan, training the number of people you say you will, and completing the training within 24 months.
The Blong Technology Center, Iowa’s most advanced manufacturing training center, is 15 miles from DeWitt and has advanced manufacturing programs including electronics, hydraulics, pneumatics, welding, CNC, logistics and CAD.
