CareerSource Florida administers two flagship training grant initiatives- Florida Flex ( formerly known as Quick Response Training) and Incumbent Worker Training (IWT)- to help businesses and workers advance and maintain competitiveness and technological skills.
Florida Flex grants help to relocate or expand businesses and cover training expenses for new employees after jobs have been created or retained. This business-friendly program is flexible to respond quickly to corporate training objectives. Once approved, the business chooses what training is needed, who provides it, and how it is provided. Applying online is easy and approval is quick.
Incumbent Worker Training
Incumbent Worker Training (IWT) program provides training to currently employed workers to keep Florida's workforce competitive in a global economy and to help retain existing businesses. The program is available to all Florida businesses that have been in operation for at least one year prior to application submission and require training for existing employees. Public, private, or in-house training providers may be used based on the type of training needed.
