Who Qualifies for Training Funding?

If you are a California employer, you may qualify for a training subsidy from the State of California Employment Development Department.  The revenue your company receives can range from $500-$1000 or more per employee per year.

Would your company benefit if your employees improved their ability to innovate, utilize new technologies, improve customer relations, and more effectively identify customer needs?

The State of California provides millions of training dollars each year to enable companies to become more competitive in regional, national or international markets companies to offset the cost of employee training. Many California businesses are unaware of this opportunity to make improvements with subsidies from the State.
