About the PIPELINE Program

Minnesota's economy is booming, but finding talent in today's tight labor market is a challenge for many employers, including those in the Brainerd area. Dual training is an employer-driven solution to provide employees with the skills they need to succeed at work. 

The PIPELINE team at the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry supports employers as they create or enhance competency-based dual-training programs where workers receive a combination of related instruction paired with on-the-job training. Read more about the PIPELINE Program.
