Training & Guidelines

Training & Guidelines

Most jobs require some education or training beyond a high school diploma. Some jobs require short-term training and industry-recognized credentials, while others require traditional educational programs like associate’s and bachelor’s degrees or above. Apprenticeships may also be an option.

Lifelong learning is also necessary to stay current in your career. Additional training to continue along a career pathway will be important for on-going job success.

Choosing a training program is an important decision. In addition to job interests, you should know what work outcomes to expect from training.

Some jobs require training that is beyond what you receive in a classroom or the experience you may have gained from previous jobs. The goal of On-the-Job Training is to put unemployed individuals back to work earning a paycheck while receiving job specific training, instruction, and real work experience. Training takes place in a real work environment, using the tools, equipment, and materials employees use when fully trained. Upon completion of the training, you will be ready for placement in a long-term position.  

On-the-Job Training may be an option if you:

  • Have proven success on the job

  • Possess basic job skills

  • Are ready to get back to work

  • Are willing to learn new skills
