Existing Industry Program
The purpose of the Existing Industry Program is to accommodate customized training for companies needing to re-tool and/or re-train to remain competitive and retain jobs. Oklahoma’s economic future depends on existing business and industry remaining competitive, which frequently requires providing the existing workforce with upgrade training on new systems or equipment. Gordon Cooper can design and customize training to help companies achieve global excellence.
To qualify for this initiative, a company must export goods and services outside of the Oklahoma or be suppliers of exporters (i.e., manufacturers, distribution centers, business services centers, etc.). These funds are intended to enhance the vitality of private industry, but may be used for existing government projects that are designed to convert government jobs into civilian jobs through the implementation of new technology and/or processes.
