Work Immersion Program Reopening

The Governor’s Workforce Board (GWB) has announced that the Work Immersion Program will be reopening on Monday August 27th at 9:00. The application will be accessible at the GWB website.

The program typically goes on hiatus each summer for reform and improvement. A summary of the changes that have been made to the program can be viewed here. Importantly, employers wishing to utilize the Work Immersion program must first register as a state supplier by visiting the state supplier website linked here. Any employer that has participated in the Work Immersion program within the last 5 years is likely already registered as a state supplier.

Employers may only utilize the Work Immersion program for individuals hired after the Monday relaunch date (individuals hired days, weeks, or months prior cannot be enrolled).

The Incumbent Worker Training program remains temporarily closed and will relaunch shortly.

The GWB will provide notice once that program is set to return, but employers are encouraged to monitor the GWB website for updates.
