Affordable Analytics Training through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant

Affordable Analytics Training through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant

Classroom Training CoursesWe’ve all heard that ‘practice makes perfect’.

That is how you really get ‘great’ at something – sports, academia, cooking…and digital analytics.

To practice, you need to train, keep on top of new developments and at times even do a re-fresher and practice what you think you already know to uncover missed opportunities and techniques.

While there is a cost involved to train people with new skills or hone existing skills so that they get better/faster/smarter at doing their jobs, employers do not have to fund the entire 100% investment on their own.

The Canadian government offers direct financial aid to individual employers who want to provide their employees (new or existing) with short term training through the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.

Even better, ClickInsight’s 2-day in-classroom analytics training courses are covered under this grant:

The Canada-Ontario Job Grant:

  • Provides up to $10K in government support per employee for training costs
  • Requires employers to cover 1/3 of total training costs
  • Requires that training be delivered by an eligible, third-party trainer

For full details about the grant, eligibility requirements, application process visit Questions and Answers for Employers. If you meet the eligibility criteria, download the application form and submit so your application can be assessed and considered for the grant.

Good luck with your application and happy learning!

    Your article indicates it’s for employees.
    It’s a small detailbut an important one!
    As you can see at tcu.gov.on.ca/eng/eopg/cojg
    For information and assistance:
    1-800-361-4642 ext. 3008
    You have to be employed and this is setup by your employer in order to get help with goverment funding.
    Funding is not available for people who need a job or who wants to get goverment help!

      Hi Luke, Thank you for pointing out that we need to make this clearer.

      Yes, the COJG grant is for employers to apply for their employees. If the training is needed for an new employee to get a job, a COJG grant might be approved.

      There are other programs that can help unemployed folks. Look here http://www.canadabenefits.gc.ca for federal programs, and there might also be provincial programs like “Second Career” http://www.secondcareerontario.com/web/second_career/

    Thanks for the quick reply,
    From checking the second career program a while back I don’t remember seeing anything about any google programs available as a second career. It is more geared towards Electricians, mechanics and truck drivers etc.
    I will check on Canada Benefit programs right away. Thanks for helping.
    Luke

      Hi Luke,
      Google Analytics would fall into the ICT (Information and Communications Technology) sector.
      Best of luck!
