T-SEC understands economic growth depends on increased production, increased efficiency, and the desire for innovation;  however, without a properly trained workforce, growth is limited.


As the Hudson Valley’s innovation partner, T-SEC supports workforce training by funding the purchase of high-tech equipment and deploying it to our partners. Our partners are in the academic and manufacturing sectors as well as economic development agencies. Together with our partners, we make training programs available to students, entrepreneurs, veterans, and those returning to the workforce.
