JTPA: The Job Training Partnership Act provides two programs for industrial employers: 1) classroom training programs that prepare prospective employees in a vocational field, and 2) on-the-job training programs that pay a percentage of the employee’s wage during the training program.
VOCATIONAL/TECHNICAL TRAINING: Vocational/technical training is available on three levels: 1) the Box Elder School District provides educational and vocational training within Box Elder County; 2) the Bridgerland Applied Technology Center, located in Logan, 23 miles east, trains adults and secondary students for a wide variety of skilled occupations and also offers in-house or in-plant training tailored to the needs of a particular firm; and 3) Utah State University, 25 miles east, and Weber State University, 40 miles south, offer vocational/technical programs suited for industry.
JOB SERVICE: Job Service provides an employee referral service. In addition, they provide labor market information for decisions concerning plant sites, personnel programs, affirmative action plans, recruitment/training programs, and government loans to businesses.
