Employment and Training

Training & Support

We help you explore training options that lead to a credential and if enrolled, also provide assistance with tuition and training costs. In addition, we may also provide Support Services such as gas vouchers, work clothes, etc. while you’re in training.

Occupational Skills and Classroom Training is generally short-term training that results in a certificate or credential leading to employment that provides self-sufficiency. Examples include truck driver training (CDL), Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA), welding and industrial manufacturing technology and phlebotomy. Our programs can pay tuition, books and other training related expenses.

Support Services are used to support people while in or after training completion. Support Services may include the purchase of work clothes, tools, gas vouchers, auto-insurance, food handler’s permit, etc.
