About WEDnetPA

We make Pennsylvania, its companies and their employees more productive and competitive.

The Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania (WEDnetPA) was created to make companies across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania more competitive by updating and improving the skills of their employees to meet specific company needs.

WEDnetPA is an alliance of a variety of educational providers across Pennsylvania — including 11 of Pennsylvania's State System universities, Pennsylvania's 14 community colleges and other educational providers — that acts as the delivery mechanism for the Commonwealth's Guaranteed Free Training (GFT) program. Each provider/WEDnetPA partner serves as the point of contact for businesses accessing GFT funds.

Through the GFT Program, qualified in-state businesses and out-of-state companies relocating to the economic-friendly business climate of Pennsylvania can access funding for a wide range of training (categorized as either Basic Skills Training or Information Technology Training).

"Guaranteed Free Training has allowed us to bring to the Public Opinion some of the most effective training programs that I have seen during my 29-year career. The value of this program is more than the dollars invested by the state. The technical and production-related training has provided new insight and skills to our employees that are reflected in the quality of our product."
