Training

Employers can also train employees through different programs that are designed to improve the skills of workers.

On-the-Job Training programs help employers train individuals for a position. The program reimburses companies for up to 50 percent of the employee’s wages during the time of the training.

NCWorks Apprenticeship prepares individuals for an industry through a combination of classroom instruction and On-the-Job Training.

The Incumbent Workforce Development Program provides grants to employers to pay for the cost of training their workers.
