Who is eligible for the TIP program?

The Training for Industry Program (TIP) is designed for out-of-state businesses relocating in our state, and for expanding companies presently located in Oklahoma. Training programs are custom tailored to meet the specific needs of the company. TIP is provided at no cost to the company, with the only requirement being the creation of new jobs for Oklahoma.
How does TIP work?

Representatives from your organization and ICTC will meet to assess the training needs of your company. We will work with you to design a customized training program by assessing competencies needed in each job category. A statement of understanding will be developed that outlines responsibilities, areas and length of training, number of employees to be trained, and other special requirements. There are no applications to complete or reviews by committees - just quality training delivered to your Oklahoma employees when and where you need it!
TIP has helped attract hundreds of businesses and industries to Oklahoma and helped them become more productive and profitable after their move. Oklahoma companies that have taken advantage of TIP training have benefited from decreased absenteeism, lower turnover, and reduced downtime.
Curriculum Development

Through customized planning, we can provide employee handbooks, training manuals, training videos and other customized curriculum to fit your needs. This program has been designated by the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education as a Regional Curriculum Development Center, servicing all of Eastern Oklahoma.
