​​​In 1996, a group of Human Resource Managers from industries in Northwest Arkansas collectively asked, “How do you raise the skill level of our workforce?”

Collectively, they pooled their resources and created Northwest Arkansas Industries for Education, a not-for-profit 501(C)3 consortium of area businesses and industries, with the purpose of creating customized, skill-based training that are designed to suit a wide range of manufacturing needs. 

In the last quarter of 2015, Northwest Arkansas Industries for Education became Business and Industry Training offering hands on short term industry certifications to meet the training needs in Northwest Arkansas and across the nation. This vision has now become a reality. Now, nationally recognized as a unique, hands-on short term industrial-technical training center.


Here at Business & Industry Training, we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2000, we’ve been supporting our community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts. Just imagine what we can achieve together!
