CUSTOM FIT

Custom Fit pays up to 40% for ANY professional training that helps your business and employees enhance their skills.

Custom Fit is a statewide training program. This unique program offers you, your company, and your employees the benefit of state-of-the-art training and development, customized to meet your specific needs. The Utah State Legislature appropriates funds each year as an investment in Utah’s economy through Custom Fit.

These funds allow us to subsidize up to 40% of the cost of training to qualified for-profit companies. Custom Fit Training is the perfect solution for entrepreneurial and growing companies that would benefit from partially-subsidized training programs. Our goal is to help organizations grow, train, and retain an efficient and productive employee base.
