Worker Retraining

Worker Retraining is a state-funded program that provides job-related training and employment services to dislocated and unemployed workers to help them gain additional training in their field or to get started on a new career.  Students may receive additional funding to help pay for retraining tuition, books and fees or “jump-start” funding while waiting financial aid approval. 

Students may also need to take additional steps to keep their unemployment benefits while attending training and possibly qualify to receive additional unemployment benefits. The college works with the Employment Security Department and other community agencies to provide services to dislocated workers. LCC offers educational planning, advising, and assistance with admissions, registration, and financial aid processes.
