  3. Is it possible to use multiple training providers?

    In some instances, it may be necessary to utilize multiple training providers (i.e., a training provider may be unable to offer certain types of training, or be unable to train in other locations throughout the state). Where multiple training providers are utilized, a primary training provider is selected. The primary training provider is responsible for procuring the services of additional training providers, if necessary. As a general rule, the primary training provider provides the majority of the training; however, in some instances the primary provider may be the training institution responsible for coordinating the training project, and acting as fiscal agent. Funds are disbursed to the primary training provider, who in turn is responsible for reimbursing and monitoring all other providers.
