Computer & Basic Skills Training for Employers

If you have at least ten employees lacking basic skills in core competency areas, we can help you improve their skills by providing free training under a grant program from the Department of Labor and Workforce Development that supports training for (NJ Business & Industry Association) NJBIA members and NJ businesses (note that public employees are ineligible for training under this grant).

Funds are available to help your employees get the training they need in:

  • Communications skills / Business writing
  • Computer skills (Windows, Word, Excel, Outlook, PowerPoint)
  • Mathematics skills
  • Blueprint reading
  • Customer Service Training

Best of all, we will organize the training at no charge at your company’s location or at our campus. Companies must provide an FEIN and DUNS number, and employees must be employed at least 20 hours per week and “on the clock” during training. To take advantage of this program for your employees, con­tact Linda Johnson at or at (973) 684-7742.
