New Hampshire’s Community Colleges are committed to working with businesses throughout the state to train and retain employees to develop a robust workforce across all sectors. Workforce Training Solutions programs at each of the community colleges, as well as the WorkReadyNH program, are core parts of this commitment.
Employees of 70 New Hampshire companies received training through the Workforce Training Solutions program in 2015. Many of these companies took advantage of the fact that New Hampshire’s Community Colleges are the preferred training provider for the NH Job Training Fund, a $1 million fund that offers employers 1:1 matching grants for employee training. Another 943 people were trained through the WorkReadyNH program in 2015.

New Hampshire’s Community Colleges work with employers to design and implement skill-specific employee training programs on a wide range of subject matters taught by experts. We work with some of the smallest and some of the largest employers in the state, including Sig Sauer, General Electric, NH Ball Bearings, Sturm Ruger, Titeflex Aerospace, Associated Grocers, Granite State Manufacturing, Lonza Biologics and the Portsmouth Navy Shipyard.
We set up training on site or at one of our seven conveniently located campuses around the state. Our colleges have invested approximately $20 million in state of the art labs and workshops that can accommodate classes of all sizes.
