UpSkill Centralina

The Centralina Workforce Development Board provides funding to assist employers seeking to “skill up” their existing workforce as a result of changes to production processes or market demands.

Training grants are now available in increments of $10,000 for companies with 12-months of residence in North Carolina, and for incumbent workers with six-months or more on the job. Centralina Workforce Development Board works in partnership with the NCWorks Customized Industry Training Program, and third-party trainers to provide funding for job-specific training associated with an industry.
