Training & Area Schools
In Tennessee, industrial training is a customer-designed package developed to meet the needs of each new and expanding industry. The Industrial Training Service utilizes dozens of community colleges, technical institutes and technology centers to provide instructional services throughout the state.
By putting its economic development money in industrial training, the state is investing in Tennesseans while it offers industry major savings in start-up costs. The efficient process can begin even before a company opens its facility. The training program allows industry to develop and maintain a skilled labor force, to start production in the shortest possible time and to have an ongoing resource.
Levels of training assistance are determined by the amount of investment and the net number of new hires.
