Direct Access Program

Direct Access Program

The Direct Access Program addresses smaller-scale training needs by making training slots available free of charge to businesses that are eligible for the Workforce Training Fund.

Businesses should consider the pilot program when:

  • The scope and scale of training needs are smaller than what would be proposed in a General Program application
  • Training needs cannot be easily met by a consortium or Express Program grant

18 training programs have been funded across Massachusetts to train employees in such topics as process improvement, computer skills, supervisory skills, and more. To learn more about training opportunities, view the list of Direct Access Training Providers. Businesses should reach out to the contacts listed in the training providers list for more information or to register for a course.
