INCUMBENT WORKER TRAINING PROGRAM
“Think of us as a branch of your training department.”
Are you interested in funding that will pay
to train you employees?
Louisiana’s Incumbent Worker Training Program (IWTP) provides
qualifying employers with grant funding through a partnership with the
Louisiana Workforce Commission and training providers such as BPCC.
Employers benefit from the program through skill development of existing employees which increases employee productivity and company
growth, creates new jobs, retains jobs that have been eliminated, and
increases wages.
To learn about the eligibility requirements for the Incumbent Worker
Training Program, visit the Louisiana Workforce Commission’s website
www.laworks.net
Two ways employers can apply for IWTP funding:
1) If you are a medium to large organization with a wide range of training needs and you need customized training delivered on-site, then
IWTP’s Customized Training program may be right for you.
“As our IWTP grant administrator, BPCC did
an outstanding job of staying in contact and
ensuring we were on target to meet our goals. BPCC also provided excellent support with
training; their instructors were very
professional and knowledgeable.
Richard Smith, HR Administrator,
Southland Printing Company, Inc.
BPCC’s Workforce Development and Continuing Education department has a 100% success rate with customized IWTP grant approvals and has written and managed over 20 million in grant awards.
Our experts will assist your company with the entire process from
start to finish.
Call us at 678-6015 if you are interested in Customized Training
through IWTP.
2) If you are a smaller organization with 50 or fewer employees looking
for high-quality training that offers a quick turnaround from application to approval, then the Small Business Employee Training (SBET)
may be right for you. SBET is designed to benefit business and industry
by assisting in the skill development of existing employees through
individual, standardized (off-the shelf) training.
Most all of BPCC’s Professional Continuing Education courses
qualify for SBET. If you are interested in applying for this program,
