Missouri State Div. of Job Development and Training, Jefferson City.
This publication provides businesses with information on the Missouri Customized Training Program (MCTP), which provides assistance to Missouri businesses in recruiting, training, and retraining of workers. It describes the two types of MCTP training: Skill Training and On-the-Job Training. Employee recruitment options are also discussed. Four case studies illustrate a few examples of how customized training works to promote private enterprise and create employment in Missouri: Fantasia Confections, a manufacturer of dessert creations; DST Systems, a producer of computer software programs; TG (U.S.A.) Corp, a manufacturer of automotive components; and Ford Motor Company/Hazelwood, an automobile manufacturer. Specific attention is paid to one of MCTP's most attractive features--the cost to the employer. Reimbursement and federal and state new job tax credits are discussed. Application information and addresses of local job training agencies in Missouri's 15 service delivery areas are provided. (YLB)
