Quick Start

Work Training

Georgia’s Quick Start program is nationally recognized for providing high-quality training services at no cost to new or expanding businesses in Georgia. Since 1967, Quick Start has provided customized training to over 325,000 employees for more than 3,100 businesses and industries throughout the state.

Quick Start provides custom-designed training for employees to help Georgia’s new and expanding businesses run more efficiently and profitably.


Quick Start training is designed to be a partnership between your company, Quick Start and Central Georgia Technical College. The program is structured to be flexible and to respond immediately to your needs. This is accomplished by assigning your company’s training project to a Certified Economic Developer Trainer (CEDT) from Central Georgia Technical College.

Think of your CEDT as your local point of contact with Quick Start. Their job is to handle local project management, which includes supervising the training, coordinating programs, and making sure everything takes place as scheduled.

Quick Start training can either be conducted at your company’s facility, if available, or at a provided space.


Quick Start was developed with one thing in mind – creating a program that would provide flexible, relevant training designed to help new and expanding companies begin quality operations as quickly as possible.

Training is provided for all types of businesses – everything from metals, electronics, paper, plastics, textiles, apparel, food processing, printing, chemicals, warehousing and distribution, and business services, such as call centers and headquarter operations.
