Experiencing Unemployment?

Skag­it Val­ley College’s Work­er Retrain­ing pro­gram can pro­vide schol­ar­ships if you wish to gain skills in a high wage, high demand field. Our pro­gram assists stu­dents who receive unem­ploy­ment ben­e­fits, as well as dis­placed home­mak­ers, those dis­charged from mil­i­tary ser­vice, and self-employed and now unemployed.
The Employ­ment Secu­ri­ty Depart­ment of Wash­ing­ton State offers the Train­ing Ben­e­fits pro­gram, which offers addi­tion­al weeks of unem­ploy­ment ben­e­fits so eli­gi­ble claimants can train for careers in high demand fields.

  • The num­ber of weeks you can receive Train­ing Ben­e­fits varies accord­ing to your claim, but it is usu­al­ly 26. These are in addi­tion to the weeks you are eli­gi­ble for, when not in training.
  •  If approved for train­ing ben­e­fits, you do not have to look for work as long as you are enrolled and mak­ing sat­is­fac­to­ry progress in your train­ing program.
  • The Employ­ment Secu­ri­ty Depart­ment of Wash­ing­ton State does not pay for books, tuition or school-relat­ed fees, but SVC’s Work­er Retrain­ing pro­gram does!
