BWI works with employers to create customized training programs to meet their hiring demands. We’re currently recruiting for our security guard training.

We train unemployed or underemployed New Yorkers who face barriers to meaningful employment. Training programs vary in length and content depending on the needs of employers. However, past training programs have been two to five weeks in length and included a mixture of classroom-based training and hands-on instruction.

We work with partners throughout the city that have specialized training labs so that trainees can benefit from the best training facilities. Our partners have facilities for plumbing, soldering, forklift operation, food handling, and other skills and certifications, as needed.

All BWI training programs are offered free of charge to both trainees and employers.
