For more than twenty years, ITAG has been a go-to resource for employers seeking support with tech-based worker training in southeastern PA.
Through our partnership with the PA Department of Labor & Industry & the Chester County Workforce Development Board, ITAG awards grant dollars to regional companies for eligible incumbent worker training. These cash grants can reimburse up to 50% of a company’s costs for a given training project, with special opportunities for training that supports layoff aversion and/or is critical to a company’s long-term growth and success in the region.
ITAG has awarded over $7 million training dollars to more than 100 local employers over the years, helping workers learn critical skills while meeting the ever-changing needs of our technology sector and advancing our regional economy.
Examples of trainings, certifications, and job skills that ITAG has funded in recent years include:
- Business System Analysis
- Technical Project Management
- Programming Languages and Developer Platforms
- Cloud Computing Architecture
- Software Development Methodologies
- Network Administration and Security
- Dev Ops
ITAG’s worker training initiatives are led by a volunteer committee to identify high-priority training needs and make funding recommendations.
