Two Boise companies will receive funds from the state to train workers.
MotivePower Inc., which makes locomotives and rail cars, will get up to $288,000 to train 85 workers for new jobs in Idaho and eight existing workers who need upgraded skills to keep their jobs.
Another company iVinci Health, which provides billing software for hospitals, will get up to $38,000 to train seven new employees.
Funds comes from the Workforce Development Training Fund, which gets its money from a 3 percent set-aside of Idaho's unemployment-insurance taxes, which are paid by employers. The money is used to reimburse companies after they have paid for training. Money goes to jobs that pay at least $12 an hour and provide health insurance.
Since it began, the fund has reimbursed 200 companies more than $38 million to train 20,000 workers.
