Published on

EMSI's Doug Heckman and John Hawkins will walk through the TechHire Partnership grant program and discuss how to best incorporate labor market data in your grant application. The Department of Labor has mandated that data be used to demonstrate ​how your partnership will train for well-paying, high-growth occupations in H1-B industries.

Topics:
- How to determine high-growth jobs in H1-B industries in your region
- How to break out high-growth jobs by skill level (particularly mid and high)
- How to determine which training programs make the most sense for your region
- Best practices from colleges and workforce boards who have developed accelerated training programs
