Customized Training

More than 40 years ago North Carolina pioneered free, customized job training for new and expanding businesses that help create new jobs. In 2005 the state passed legislation that extends training benefits to include companies that may not meet job creation requirements, but help the state and local economies grow in other ways.

Administered through North Carolina's nationally renowned community college system, the Customized Training program provides training of employees in your company’s specific processes and on your equipment. Eligibility for free Customized Training is based on levels of capital improvements, job creation and other factors.
