The Rhode Island Marine Trades Association (RIMTA) says that it has been allowed by the state to administer reimbursement funding for marine and composites companies training their current workforce. The Incumbent Worker Training Funds can apply to technical training as well as areas such as sales, accounting and IT, the association says.

 Employees can also attend outside training programs and the funding can reportedly apply if a conpany’s own supervisors teach employees new skills.

 Companies are reimbursed 50% of the training costs. Contact RIMTA for more information.
