KCTCS TRAINS Funding Options
Our training has many advantages over traditional college classes! Our classes are:
- Customized to your industry
- Scheduled based on your worker availability
- On-site or near your site
- Taught by industry-experienced instructors
- Possibly eligible for 75% paid state funding
Industry courses offered through OCTC's Workforce Solutions division are tailored to your industry, personalized to your organization’s strategic priorities and adapted to meet your needs. This industry training option allows you the opportunity to schedule classes and labs whenever it is most convenient for employees. If possible, we can offer training at your location or near your location at one of our satellite campuses. An industry-experienced instructor delivers personalized training.
In addition, your employees will not have to assume the responsibility of submitting transcripts, taking the college placement test, registering for courses, paying fees, and buying books and supplies on their own before the class starts. At Workforce Solutions, these tasks are handled by a single point of contact. Your employees don't pay tuition and fees on an individual basis. Your organization is charged only after the training has progressed. Most of our industry training programs are eligible for KCTCS TRAINS funding (75% paid with state funding).
Since production requirements are first and foremost with majority of our company partners, they overwhelmingly prefer the flexibility and individualization that customized delivery provides.

Your company may be eligible to 75% or 100% training funds from Kentucky.
75% FUNDING FOR INCUMBENT WORKER TRAINING
All for-profit companies in the Commonwealth of Kentucky are eligible for KCTCS-TRAINS funding. KCTCS-TRAINS will support projects for:
- existing Kentucky companies that are requiring employees to learn new skills in their jobs.

For incumbent worker training, companies are required to pay 25% of the cost and KCTCS-TRAINS reimburses the college directly for the remaining 75%. Colleges will work with the company to identify a schedule for invoicing after services are delivered.
100% FUNDING for Companies new to Kentucky
For companies that are creating new jobs by relocating into Kentucky or for existing business/industry that are already doing business in Kentucky, workforce education and training programs and services are available at a 100% no-cost level after meeting eligibility specifics and minimum requirements.
Eligible companies are defined by program requirements for the Kentucky Business Investment (KBI) Program as defined by KRS 154.32.

Then following each CBT module, the employees come together for an in-person training session to demonstrate the skills they have learned. The CBT modules provide training in Professional Development or Industry Specific topics. Face-to-face training may be eligible for KCTCS TRAINS funding.
