    Partner Testimonials

    “Clark Metal Products has been a long-time participant in the WEDnet program. The program has allowed our company to not only increase the skills of our manufacturing team, but also to elevate the level of computer and technical skills for many of our office staff. The WEDnet team at IUP has been extremely helpful from start to finish. They provided detailed instructions on accessing the ISAAC web portal and creating training plans, as well as very timely review and response for approval. The WEDnet program allows organizations to develop their incumbent workforce to meet the ever-changing needs of a truly global economy. I encourage other organizations who are not participants to reach out to the team at IUP to learn more about the opportunities that exist via the WEDnet program.”
    —Ellen M. Starry, Director of Human Resources, Clark Metal Products, Blairsville, PA

The application process continues to improve with time, making it easier than ever to apply for grants and to submit invoices for processing. Whether it's due to a growing workforce or constant changes in technology, Joy Global will always require continued training for its workforce. We look forward to a continued relationship with the IUP WEDnetPA team, and strongly recommend other companies consider participating in this program.”
