The Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) is Kentucky’s primary provider of workforce education, delivering programs and services that address the full spectrum of needs faced by corporations, industries and small businesses. In addition to offering a wide array of academic and technical programs aligned to workplace needs, KCTCS and its colleges provide customized training for businesses and industry to ensure our business partners can build and sustain their talent pipeline.

The centerpiece of KCTCS workforce and economic development efforts is the KCTCS-TRAINS program. Through this program, our college works with companies to provide training for their employees to develop high performance organization and help workers gain world-class, transferable skills in a timely manner.

KCTCS-TRAINS is a fund designated by the Kentucky General Assembly to help companies willing to invest in workforce development for their employees. These funds are administered by KCTCS and are available through KCTCS colleges. Available in 2020, companies who have not previously taken advantage of KCTCS TRAINS funding may be eligible for funding at 75% for a period up to one year and a total project cost up to $150,000.

Our Workforce Solutions staff will work with you to determine your eligibility, complete the application and paperwork, and develop training networks.
