One of the biggest incentives companies worldwide have found in coming to Alabama is the quality of the state’s workforce and its highly-respected workforce development program.
Alabama Industrial Development Training is the first state training program in the world to be certified in compliance with ISO 9001:2000, the International Organization for Standardization Principle for Quality Management. AIDT also was ranked first among workforce training programs in all 50 states by Expansion Management Magazine.
Services are provided at no cost to employers or trainees. The workforce management system includes recruitment, assessment and training of potential employees, development and production of job-related training materials, provision of training facilities, and delivery of job-specific services. AIDT also provides certified manager training and supervisory and team leadership training.
And to make the state’s services more accessible to business, a new Workforce Development System has been implemented to coordinate the state’s many services. The program will enhance career technical program offerings at the state’s community and technical colleges, and guide employers to existing resources.
