Employee Training Funds
The Employee Training Assistance Fund, established by the Workforce Investment Council of Clackamas County, and managed through Clackamas Community College Workforce Development Services (WDS), was created to increase business competitiveness and employee retention by supporting regional employers' efforts to skill-up their existing workforce. This training assistance is funded by the State of Oregon Sector Strategy Initiative awarded to Workforce Investment Council to enhance the skills of the region's workers in skilled occupations. Financial assistance is available for businesses in the Manufacturing and Health Care sectors to offset training costs for employees.
