Workforce Development Task Force

By 2020, nearly 67 percent of jobs in the United States will require some post-secondary training or education beyond high school. Due to a lack of needed skills, thousands of Idaho jobs are chronically unfilled, putting statewide economic growth at risk. To address these issues, in January 2017, Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter announced the creation of the Workforce Development Task Force to study ways to improve Idaho’s funding and delivery of training programs to meet growing industry demand for skilled workers. The Task Force made its recommendations in June of 2017 and recommendations are currently being explored.


During September, the Idaho Department of Labor will be offering a wide range of training opportunities. For details on these events: Click Here
