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.

With KCTCS-TRAINS, companies that qualify receive funding to assist with the cost of providing workforce training and assessment services to current as well as potential employees. These funds are distributed on a project basis and require your company to pay 50% of the project cost and a 10% administrative fee.  For your first KCTCS-TRAINS project, the cost can be even less.

Companies may apply individually or as a training network with other companies. The training networks meet common training needs of business and industry from various sectors of the economy. The network approach is successful because companies who only need one or two employees trained can join with other companies to obtain cost-effective and timely training.

Our Workforce Solutions staff will work with you to determine your eligibility, complete the application and paperwork, and develop training networks if feasible. For more information call 859-246-6666 or e-mail us at BL_WorkforceSolutions@kctcs.edu.
