Education & Training

Individuals who need training to acquire new skills or who need to upgrade their current skills may be eligible for financial assistance. Training must be in a high demand occupation and provided by an approved educational institution. Funding is dependent on availability and program qualification (e.g. Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act, Department of Vocational Rehabilitation, VETS, etc).

Other resources are available to the general public: computer tutorials (Microsoft Office, keyboarding, and Quicken (limited)) are available on-site at the job centers. Contact your local center for more details.
