Sometimes additional training can be the barrier that stands between you and your next job. Attend this session to learn if you are eligible for training assistance to develop useful skills for the workplace or to make the skills you already have more marketable. Dislocated workers from Boston based companies and income eligible adults from the city of Boston are especially welcome. This session will provide an overview of the Workforce Investment Act, a federally funded skills training program that pays for job skills training to eligible individuals who meet specific criteria.
After completing this workshop you will be able to:
- Learn if you qualify for training funding
- Complete a customer portfolio summary and TABE test to assess your English writing and math skills
- Understand the process for applying for training funding
