LA FastStart #1 In USA For 7th Year In A Row

Business Facilities magazine has named FastStart, the workforce training program of Louisiana Economic Development, the best in the nation for an unprecedented seventh year in a row. “Louisiana Economic Development’s innovative FastStart program remains the gold standard for workforce training initiatives, said Editor-in-Chief Jack Rogers. “It’s getting harder to rank the leaders in workforce training because so many states have finally gotten the message that workforce development is Job One in the U.S…Louisiana’s FastStart is the best, and the best thing about it is that it keeps getting better.”

The Top Ten states for workforce training are:

1. Louisiana
2. Georgia
3. Alabama
4. Tennessee
5. New Mexico
6. Florida
7. Virginia
8. North Carolina
9. Oklahoma
10. Texas
