Dislocated Worker Program

Our services are designed to meet the workforce needs of area businesses and get workers back to work as quickly as possible. We help employers through customized training programs and an incentive-based on-the-job training program. If you are an unemployed worker, you can benefit from our career planning and counseling, job search training and referrals, and on-the-job training with local employers.
