WEDnetPA has trained more than 1,000,000 Pennsylvania employees!
Since its inception in 1999, more than 17,000 companies across the Commonwealth have utilized WEDnetPA job training to update and improve the skills of their workers, and in turn, enable themselves to better compete within their respective industries. The program has grown to become the primary delivery system for Pennsylvania’s incumbent workforce training.
In the spring of 2013, the program trained its 1,000,000th Pennsylvania employee — a significant milestone that was announced by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Corbett during a visit to Montgomery County manufacturer receiving training funds through WEDnetPA.
“My goal as governor is a job for every Pennsylvanian that wants one and a trained Pennsylvanian for every job,” Corbett said. “WEDnetPA is one of a number of workforce development initiatives my administration is supporting to continue our heritage of having a hard-working, highly-skilled workforce ready to fulfill the jobs of today.”
“Training provided by the program helps us attract new companies and enables Pennsylvania-based companies to remain competitive,” he added.
