Existing Workforce Traning Program

Cossatot Community College of the University of Arkansas is proud to work with industries that are eligible to participate in the Existing Workforce Training Program. 
The primary purpose of the E.W.T.P. is to provide financial assistance to Arkansas' manufacturing industries for upgrading the skills of their existing workforce. 
This program is administered jointly by the Arkansas Department of Economic Development, the Arkansas Department of Higher Education, and the Arkansas Department of Workforce Education. The E.W.T.P. supports training for full-time, permanent employees of Arkansas companies SIC 20-39, who are subject to Arkansas personal income tax. 
To be considered for funding through the E.W.T.P. an industry must:
  • submit an application 10 working days prior to the beginning of training 
  • provide assurance that the participants involved in the proposed training program possess the prerequisite literacy skills
  • clearly tie the proposed training to specific business goals and performance objectives 
For additional information regarding the E.W.T.P. please contact the office of Workforce Development and Continuing Education.
