Customized training (CT) meets the specific skill needs of an employer or a group of employers. DORS partners with businesses, educational institutions, and American Job Centers to identify specific needs and design customized training programs to meet those needs. CT may take place at the DORS Workforce & Technology Center, on the job site, by an outside vendor, or by a combination of these settings.
DORS has many different types of CT, each has its own goals, partnerships, management structure, funding streams, target populations, and training design. Some CT meets the requirements of a particular industry sector, and other trainings are based on a particular employer's business needs.
