College and County Team Up to Offer Loans and Training to Area Businesses

Area businesses seeking training for their employees now have a new financing option, thanks to a partnership between Kendall County and Waubonsee Community College’s Workforce Development Division. Businesses located in Kendall County are eligible to apply to the County’s Revolving Loan Fund to receive working capital to finance workforce training costs.  

Waubonsee’s Workforce Development Division offers a wide variety of practical, value-added business solutions structured to meet multiple needs of the business community. The college will work with businesses and organizations to identify and assess the specific employee skill development needs of those enterprises and will customize short-term employee training programs to address and find solutions to those needs.

The services of the Workforce Development Division include: needs assessments, gap assessments and analysis, workforce skills assessment, training development and delivery, and many others to provide business solutions to organizations throughout the County. The college utilizes a wide range of subject matter experts drawn from business and industry to provide real-world training when and where it is needed. Training is often delivered at an organization’s own site.
