Upgrading your skills can lead to the right job.
For many career seekers, finding the right job right now is the logical way to go. But if you are uncertain which job is right for you, or if you lack necessary credentials/experience, training may be what's needed to help reach your career goals.
Financial aid may be available to eligible job seekers through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014. WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training and support services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
We are accepting scholarship applications for a variety of short-term training programs in Healthcare, Information Technology and Manufacturing/Logistics offered by the College of Central Florida, Withlacoochee Technical College and Marion Technical College.
