NJBIA started the popular program in 2007, and it’s free to employers and their employees. There’s no charge for the training, which is conducted by Bergen Community College and funded by the NJ Department of Labor & Workforce Development, NJBIA’s program partners.
The goal of the program is to make state training grants available to small businesses that previously were unable to meet the requirements of the state’s existing grant programs.
