|Who is eligible for Worker Retraining?|
Worker Retraining students are workers who:
- Are eligible for unemployment compensation, and/or
- Are currently receiving unemployment compensation, or have exhausted their compensation within the past 24 months.
- Are dislocated workers.
- Have separated from the U.S. armed services in the last 24 months with an honorable discharge.
|Will attending training extend my unemployment benefits?|
It is important to know that Worker Retraining only makes it easier to attend training while receiving unemployment benefits; it does not extend your benefits. Your unemployment benefits will still exhaust after the allotted time. Please see the WorkSource Office or www.go2worksource.com for more information.
|How can I afford this training when I am unemployed?|
All Worker Retraining students will be required to apply for financial aid. Veterans can also look into possible veteran's benefits.
If you are eligible, Worker Retraining can pay for tuition, fees, and required textbooks. The Clark College Worker Retraining office will determine your eligibility for these funds.
