Community College/State of Iowa Training Resources
The Des Moines Area Community College Business Resources is the first choice of Central Iowa businesses for talent development. Qualifying businesses can access training and consulting services funded through the programs described below.
The Iowa New Jobs Training Program (260E) supports businesses adding employees through expansion in, or relocation to, Iowa. The flexible funding of the 260E program allows businesses to implement an effective training plan for new employees.
The 260E program is of no cost to the business. Training is funded by DMACC through the sale of certificates for the amount of anticipated tax revenue generated from new employee salaries. The revenue generated from the certificate sale is used to establish a training fund for the business. The training can be delivered by any vendor, including DMACC.
The Iowa Jobs Training Program (260F) provides state-funded forgivable loans or grants to Iowa businesses needing to train their existing employees. A loan is forgivable if a business completes its training program and trains a specified number of employees.
