Training Opportunities

If you are unable to find suitable employment, you may qualify for training services. If you are eligible, we may pay for some of the expenses of earning a degree or certificate in an approved field. Even if you receive a Pell Grant, we can help with the cost of tuition and/or books. Your Case Manager will evaluate your individual needs and develop a plan just for you.

Our clients have varying skill levels, some need more training than others. Our agency is prepared to evaluate your individual skill level and provide the appropriate training to help you step up to a new job and get you back to work as soon as possible.  Now is the time for a new beginning. Let us help you on your way.
