A free online course from a training company that specializes in working with small business owners has earned the company more than $150,000 from the government.
The program, called SkillsUp, was launched by the US Department of Labor on Tuesday, according to the company’s website.
It is designed to give small business people a toolkit to increase their productivity.
It will run through March 28.
The course is priced at $149 per month and is offered for business owners who have less than $1 million in sales.
The government has put $2 million in the fund.
The government has not yet announced the total value of the program.
SkillsUp was created by a team of about 50 people, including an education specialist, a social media manager and a technology expert.
It was created for the federal government’s Job Corps program, which is run by the federal Department of Health and Human Services.
SkillsNow, which has trained more than 100,000 people, is the biggest training provider for small business in the US.
It also offers free online courses from a variety of companies, including PricewaterhouseCoopers and Priceline.
The company is also a partner in a partnership with the University of Virginia.
In January, the Obama administration launched a program to help small businesses improve their hiring and training processes.
About 30,000 of the unemployed people eligible for a government loan to buy a home were in small businesses.
