Vermont Training Program

Department of Economic, Housing & Community Development

The Vermont Training Program, (VTP), promotes expansion and encourages the creation and retention of jobs in Manufacturing, Information Technology, Healthcare, Telecommunication and Environmental Engineering by providing training funds for new and existing businesses thereby increasing the skills of the Vermont workforce, the wages and Vermonters' standard of living.

The two primary goals of the Vermont Training Program, (VTP), are job creation and job retention.  In order to accomplish the training program goals, the state in conjunction with the employer offers three training initiatives: new employment; upgrade and crossover training for incumbent workers. These individually designed training programs may include on-the-job; classroom; skill upgrade; or other specialized training which are mutually agreed upon between the State and employer.
