Customized Training Application for Companies At-Risk of Laying Off

As part of our Customized Training program, SDWP reimburses employers who are at risk of laying off workers up to 50% of the cost of training existing (incumbent) workers. This incumbent worker training is intended to help companies save jobs through upskilling. Companies that benefit from this program include those that have been affected by changes in legislation, outsourcing or technology where their current workers need upskilling to remain relevant in the industry and company. Reimbursable costs include wages of incumbent workers, trainer's costs, tuition, supplies, books, etc.

Employers must meet with an SDWP representative before filling in this online application. For assistance in this Customized Training application, contact RobertChu@workforce.org. It is highly recommended that applicants record their answers in a separate document before submitting the online application. There is no option to save this form online.
