Free WIO Trainings for Your Staff to Enhance Skillsets

Situation Report | October 5, 2020 

HCA’s website has links to the Workforce Investment Organizations (WIOs) approved and funded by New York State to provide free training to your staff.

The aim of the program is to retrain, recruit and retain health care workers in the long-term care sector by enhancing skillsets. The programs also offer wage replacement and training incentive payments for employers to cover “back-fill” costs for case coverage when sending staff to the trainings.

Some of the training are on-demand while others are in-person, including some upcoming trainings in October where the WIOs have announced COVID-19 safety measures are in place.
