The Utah Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) and its Talent Ready Utah team, in partnership with the Utah System of Higher Education (USHE), are pleased to announce that programs are now available for short-term workforce training.
During recent weeks, Utah institutions of higher education have been working vigorously to put in place short-term training programs that align with high-demand jobs across the state of Utah. These programs have been vetted through USHE and the Talent Ready Utah Center and are currently available for enrollment. To search for a program that meets individual needs and goals, participants can visit inutah.org/learn-work. Many of these innovative short-term programs are available tuition-free to assist Utahns in quickly returning to work in high-demand jobs.
“We’re excited to highlight short-term training programs that will allow individuals to gain skills and obtain a job using the skills they’ve learned,” said Val Hale, GOED’s executive director. “We encourage individuals to seek out training programs that interest them, providing an opportunity to reskill and re-enter the workforce.”
Programs offered through Learn & Work In Utah include high-demand skills in areas such as healthcare, information technology, business and finance, manufacturing, and technical training. The programs are available to students in a variety of online, in-person and hybrid formats.
“I am so proud of our institutions as they have been willing to adapt to provide short-term training programs beginning this fall,” said Dave R. Woolstenhulme, the state’s commissioner of higher education. “Education is critical to the sustainability of our economy. Being able to provide training to individuals who need it most is critical to skill-up and get people back to work.”
