How to take advantage of RTWNJ in 2017 – Part Five
What type of training do you need that will give you the edge when applying for a new job? If you’re in the IT industry, do you need cyber security or Scrum Master training? Does PMP or Six Sigma make sense? Are you looking to make a career change and would CNC manufacturing be a fit? These are just some of the questions you should be asking yourself.
When looking for training, we ask that you look to your local community colleges first. NJ community colleges are our grant partners and many provide career pathways once your initial training is completed. Typically, courses are offered through the Continuing Education departments. Training must be listed on the njtrainingsystems.org website to be eligible.
Through the RTWNJ Program, each candidate is typically eligible for only one approved course or program. Make your selection count. Training should be of a short term nature; designed to get you back to work quickly.
Here is the link for the Individual Training Request form. Before submitting, please make sure that you have attended a 2 Day Workshop, completed an EDP and, if required, uploaded proof of unemployment to our system. The training request form MUST be completed fully, including 3 employment opportunities for the training being requested. Failure to complete the form in it’s entirety may result in denial. Please provide at least 3 business days for the approval process.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your program coordinator.
