PMMI U Skills Fund

For Your Current Workforce

Looking to boost the skills of your company’s existing workforce? The PMMI U Skills Fund offers the financial support you need to provide valuable learning and development opportunities to your employees. 

Use the PMMI U Skills Fund to match your company’s contribution up to $10,000 per year for work-related, multi-employee corporate training initiatives like PMMI’s in-plant industry training offerings (Certified Trainer, Risk Assessment and Fundamentals of Field Service Workshops) or external offerings such as LEAN training.

The PMMI U Skills Fund makes it easier than ever for you to offer additional training, for your employees, thus increasing the skill level within your company and assisting you in retaining qualified workers.

To apply, please fill out the online application.

Per IRS regulations, funds will go directly to the training / learning / development institution or program, not the member company.
