AIDT Training

AIDT was established to build a healthy state economy by recruiting and training a skilled workforce to attract new industries to the state and to expand existing industries. Job-specific pre-employment and on-the-job training programs are provided. The program provides a full range of customized technical training programs that are offered at no cost to employers and to the trainees. 

Leadership training programs are also available.

 In addition to training, AIDT offers services including trainee recruitment and screening, safety assistance, industrial maintenance assessments and continuous improvement/process improvement assessments.

Training is conducted by AIDT staff or contracted instructors and delivered through classrooms or 38 Mobile Training Units (MTUs) customized to meet specific company needs.  MTUs go directly to the employer site to provide classroom and hands-on training.

AIDT Courses Offered

Leadership Skills I

If passed, the exam offers the credential of “AIDT Certified Leader I”. The class is offered in 2-day format.  It is designed for employed Alabama citizens currently in leadership positions.
Many people think that attending this program is in some way tied to our pre-employment training programs for other companies and may help “get your foot in the door”.  THIS IS NOT TRUE.  These leadership training programs are designed for people currently employed at Alabama companies who need to improve their leadership skills.
