STTF Reminders
Posted October 25, 2017

The State is expected to announce awards for the Skilled Trades Training Funds (STTF) this month -- around Thanksgiving. CAMC Members prepared and submitted 19 applications! Great job.

Please remember that the STTF is a competitive process and all companies will not be awarded. Any training that begins before an award is made will not be eligible for reimbursement, even if it's on your training plan. And, any new employees that are hired before an award is made will not be eligible for reimbursement either. Good luck!
