WEDnetPA Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania
In 1999, the Commonwealth committed itself to giving Pennsylvania businesses a significant competitive edge. Created by the Department of Community & Economic Development — DCED — and made available through the Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania — WEDnetPA — this program provides qualified employers training for new and existing employees. The training allows companies to stay competitive while keeping their employee’s skills current and relevant.
As a WEDnetPA partner, Corporate Solutions has administered millions of dollars in workforce training grants for area companies and is the point of contact for qualified companies who apply for WEDnetPA.
In order to better address the higher technology training needs of Pennsylvania companies, changes were made to the WEDnetPA training program areas. Basic Skills training is now called Essential Skills training and restructured Information Technology is now called Advanced Technology training. To date, these changes have been met with glowing praise from the companies who have taken advantage of the new guidelines.
