A Workforce Program to UPSKILL Talent for the Manufacturing Industry — Recruiting, Growing, and Training Talent, and Mitigating Training Costs with Wage Subsidies
TALENT: Candidates are unemployed or underemployed and include CCAT-qualified candidates and underemployed incumbent workers their employer intends to upskill and promote. CCAT-qualified candidates have been assessed and demonstrate high-level math and mechanical aptitude that align with jobs in manufacturing, but require additional skills training for higher level positions.
TRAININGS: We provide customized trainings, mentor/training subsidies, other employee and technical supports employers need to help them grow their business for the future and build a stronger, vibrant workforce for a rapidly changing work world.

$7,800 in MENTOR WAGE SUBSIDIES: We offer $7,800 in wage subsidy reimbursement for manufacturing Connecticut companies that identify a mentor to assist the hired candidate, or the newly trained incumbent worker, for eight weeks with on-the-job training support.
EMPLOYER ELIGIBILITY: Eligible Connecticut manufacturers who are committed to training talent for the future with candidates who are underemployed or unemployed. Candidates come from across the state of Connecticut and must be upskilled through a training plan in partnership with the REV-UP technical team and the employer. For more eligibility details, see below.
