Through a partnership between the State of South Carolina and the SC Technical College System, there are highly renowned programs that can help recruit and train talent to meet the needs of any company.
Funds may be available to train current employees to meet changing skill requirements due to new technology, restructuring, new product lines and other factors. An employer match is required. Funding priority is given to training that will lead to significant upgrades in employee skills or wages that will result in layoff aversion and better retention opportunities. Funding for this program is allocated annually.
On-the-job training provides wage or salary reimbursement from 50-90% (depending on the size of the business) to compensate for costs associated with training new employees. The percentage and length of reimbursement vary based on the size of the company, the specific skills to be acquired for the job and the local workforce area.
