CHARLESTON, S.C. (Feb. 14, 2019) – SC Works Trident and its Trident Workforce Development Board has awarded $100,000 to eight local businesses connected to Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) programs. The funds, made possible by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), will support training as each business advances technology, expands and offers new services as part of a layoff aversion strategy.
“From engineering to environmental services, we’re delighted to see these employers benefit from their commitment to a well-educated, local workforce,” said BCDCOG Executive Director Ron Mitchum. “These dollars mean a great deal to our mission of preparing tomorrow’s workforce for the demand of the region’s growth sectors.”
Businesses receiving funds through the $100,000 grant include Levy Environmental Services-Charleston Mill, Equiscript, LLC, Life Cycle Engineering, AHT Cooling Systems USA, CECA, Voith Syn-Strand, Thrace-LINQ and Argos.
