10/20 – Energy Related Training Funds for 2016-2017
The Smart Energy Initiative can help your organization maintain a competitive workforce with a grant to offset partial costs of energy-related training (eligible employers/trainees can receive a reimbursement of up to 50% of course costs for each trainee). Funding is provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry and the Chester County Workforce Development Board.
Eligibility & Conditions
If you or your employees have taken any of the classes listed above and you have not yet applied for grant funds, please contact us. If you have an energy industry related class in which you are interested in taking, or have already taken, during this time frame and it is not on the list above please contact us; we may be able to revise the list.
As a condition of the funding grant, recipients are asked to report a training outcome for each employee, such as a projected wage increase, new title, or promotion. As required by the Department of Labor and Industry, trainees must provide their social security number (SSN) and complete a brief training evaluation following completion of the training. SSNs are not retained and are used for state reporting only.
Disallowable costs include: conferences; non-certification or credential seminars, travel or other expenses; and lost wages or salary reimbursement.
Contact the Smart Energy Initiative with questions, request more information, or to receive timely notifications of SEI-approved training in the region.
