Posted:

MADISON (WKOW) -- The state is moving forward with a new job training program.

Leaders from the Department of Workforce Development, the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation and the Wisconsin Technical College System signed an agreement to team up for the "Wisconsin Fast Forward" initiative.

It's a $15 million grant program designed to help workers with job training.

"The Wisconsin Fast Forward initiative is quickly moving forward to provide workers with the training they need for the jobs of today and tomorrow," Governor Walker said.  "These grants will be used help Wisconsin workers gain new skills, connect workers with jobs, and foster job creation and expansion by offering innovative training solutions that match employers' current needs."

Officials hope to get it off the ground by the end of the year.
