CCC Provides Custom Training, Aids Grant Funding for Local Businesses

 

Camden County College’s Customized Training Institute has provided personalized courses to hundreds of area businesses, and many of these programs have been funded using millions of dollars in New Jersey State Workforce Development Grants that the College helped the companies procure.

 

CCC’s Corporate Training Institute partners with business and industry clients throughout the region. After completing a needs-assessment, the Institute matches its program offerings with client needs. Then, Institute staff help representatives of each client company develop and submit a grant application to the state Department of Labor, which provides monies for this purpose from the state Unemployment Insurance Fund.

 

Once funded, the companies receive training for their employees at no cost to them. The Institute provides the classes along with administrative support and technical expertise.

 

Four local companies received funding during the Department of Labor’s most recent application review and will be working with CCC for the duration of their 12-month grant contracts, which continue through December. They are: Archway Programs, which received $20,800 toward training in marketing, sales, applied behavioral analysis and advanced personal computing skills; Catholic Charities, which received $34,000 toward training in teambuilding, interviewing skills, verbal/written communication, social work ethics, time management and customer service; NEST International, which received $44,517 toward training in advanced Excel, leadership, coaching/delegation, change management, team effectiveness and in-house system upgrades; and Payroll Associates, which received $11,200 toward training in leadership, teambuilding and project management.
