Unemployment Insurance Approved Training Programs
With assistance from a local workforce center or the Unemployment Insurance Division, individuals receiving unemployment benefits may be able to continue receiving benefits and have the number of required weekly job contacts reduced or removed while enrolled in approved training. Approved training plans must focus on short-term training programs for occupations that are in-demand and lead to stable long-term jobs.
