What kind of training can I get?
There are 2 types of training available through Vintage Advantage – Short Term Skills Training and Employer Based Training.
Short Term Skills Training – Training must be related to your employment or self-employment goal and must be completed before the end of the program. Some examples are FoodSafe, first aid, specific computer programs, Serving it Right among many other options. Courses are considered on an individual basis and dependent on available funding. Some training approvals might require a written offer of employment from an employer.
Employer Based Training – This is when an employer hires you and trains you on the job. VA subsidizes a portion of your wages while you are in training with your new employer. The job must be ongoing after the training is completed.
