Senate Bill 65 is a bipartisan bill with lead bipartisan sponsorship from Senator Brian Pettyjohn and Representative Bill Bush that establishes the Focus on Alternative Skills Training Program (“FAST”). FAST will provide tuition, up to $9,000, to Delaware residents who have graduated high school or have received their GED so that they can attend a non-degree credit certificate program. The Workforce Development Board will create a list of non-degree credit certificate programs approved for the FAST program. This will help Delawareans complete training programs in a skilled field that does not require a college degree, like a skilled trade such as electrician, plumbers, etc.
This bill should pass quickly and unanimously.
