Workforce Advancement Training Grants

Improving productivity and competitiveness requires an investment in employee training and development. Since 2005, the Wisconsin Technical College System has provided Workforce Advancement Training (WAT) grants to support employers in their efforts to retain and advance the skills of their existing workforce.

Workforce Advancement Training grants can help offset your customized training costs. Working with your local technical college, you can explore whether a WAT grant may work to meet your needs through an individual contract, or as part of a consortium of businesses with similar needs.

In the past five years, nearly 2,500 companies have taken advantage of WAT grant training to advance the skills of 68,200 workers.
