Workforce & Training - Made In Alabama

A workforce to be reckoned with.

Alabama is home to many resources that make it ideal for growing a business, but the greatest one of all is our people. Companies from all over the world are drawn here for one simple reason: we’re a hard-working state.

Alabama’s skilled workforce—and our steadfast commitment to developing it—has earned a reputation for being second to none. But don’t take our word for it; ask companies like Mercedes-Benz and Airbus, or any of the numerous companies who have benefited from cooperative, on-site workforce training programs developed with state workforce agencies.


One of the top 5 workforce training agencies in the U.S., AIDT is an innovative training program that provides value-added services and solutions for Alabama’s new and expanding businesses.
