The Bay Consortium Workforce Development Board provides employment and training services to the Workforce Development Area XIII.

Incumbent Worker Training Initiative Program


Incumbent worker training initiative programs provide funding assistance to employers to upgrade the skills of their current employees, thereby enhancing their expertise and making their business more competitive. The Incumbent Worker Training focuses on industry-recognized credentials to ensure your company and employees are top notch.

Employers must provide a minimum matching contribution to this Incumbent Worker Training Initiative. The Initiative will fund:

  • 90% of the cost, for employers with not more than 50 employees;
  • 75% of the cost, for employers with 51-100 employees; and
  • 50% of the cost, for employers with more than 100 employees.

The Process

  • Employer completes Incumbent Worker Application, including quote for services.
  • Applications are then presented to the Executive Director of the Bay Consortium Workforce Development Board for eligibility, appropriateness, and approval.
  • Upon approval, a contract and purchase order will be provided to the employer for signature. Once signed, the employer may enter into agreement with the proposed training provider for the training services.  The employer pays 100% of the cost of the training services, text books, and certification fees.
  • Once the employees have received their certifications, the employer can submit the invoice for reimbursement for a portion of the actual training expenses. The Bay Consortium Workforce Development Board will not reimburse employers for employees who do not complete the training and/or fail to pass the certification test.
  • Employer will be reimbursed 30 days after final paperwork is successfully submitted.
