Retraining tax credits enable Georgia businesses to offset their investment in employees. Whether retraining workers to use new equipment or new technology or upgrading the company’s competitiveness with ISO 9000 training, companies can afford more training, more often, thanks to                                    Georgia’s tax credit program.

WIOA Incumbent Worker Training:

Georgia Department of Labor logoThe new federal Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA) has a program called Incumbent Worker Training (IWT). This program provides funding assistance to qualifying companies to provide skills training or upgrading to full-time, permanent employees. Companies will receive the funding assistance needed to meet the demands of the rapidly changing economy, and the employees will receive the training necessary to upgrade present work skills, heighten job security, provide marketable skills, and increase the possibilities for higher wages and promotional opportunities. Generally these are training programs that comprise a series of courses or topics and, preferably, result with an industry-recognized credential. Companies may be reimbursed for up to 50% of the total cost of employee training!
