In particular, SWAPTE is positioned to work with local businesses to leverage their training investment, adding profit back to their bottom line. SWAPTE ‘s On-the-Job Training pays up to 50% of costs to train a company’s eligible new hires from 11 to 26 weeks; while SWAPTE’s Incumbent Worker Training pays up to 50% of a company’s total training costs for existing staff, up to $30,000 maximum per contract. Businesses put up the other 50% and may contribute in-kind contributions as well as cash toward the match.
