The Workforce and Economic Development Network of Pennsylvania (WEDnetPA) was created to make companies across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania more competitive locally, nationally and internationally, by updating and improving the skills of their employees to meet specific company needs.
WEDnetPA is an alliance of educational providers across Pennsylvania — including HACC — that acts as a delivery mechanism for workforce training grants. As a WEDnet provider, HACC serves as the point of contact for businesses accessing these training funds.
Qualified in-state businesses and out-of-state companies relocating to the economic-friendly business climate of Pennsylvania can access funding for a wide range of training that is described further on the website at www.wednetpa.com
