Worker Retraining Programs
Training programs and funding are available to eligible students who need to change careers in order to re-enter the workforce.
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 funding to help pay for retraining tuition, books and fees or “jump-start” funding while waiting for financial aid approval.
Additional steps may be required to maintain unemployment benefits and/or 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.

If you apply and are approved for Training Benefits you may be eligible for extra weeks of benefits paid after regular unemployment benefits and Emergency Unemployment Compensation (EUC) have run out.
If approved, you do not have to look for work.
