Business Skills And Training Programs Offered
California small-business owners who are adversely affected by foreign competition, are suffering because of military base closures, want more business training to help them grow their companies and thus add more jobs, or who demonstrate a shortage of trained employees in their industries can benefit from programs sponsored by the Employment Training Panel.
The Employment Training Panel provides funding for an entrepreneurial training program, in which small-business owners learn business management and related skills such as accounting, taxes and marketing.
Business owners can also apply to the panel for funds to help train employees. The training program must provide at least 40 hours of instruction and lead to permanent positions.
For other criteria, contact the Employment Training Panel office at (916) 327-5262, or call to ask about attending one of the free monthly orientation programs held in North Hollywood, San Mateo, Sacramento and San Diego.
