Kentucky Unemployment Job Training
Decide what type of training best meets your needs.
- Explore occupations through the Occupational Explorer online at www.kylmi.ky.gov
- Access information on Kentucky schools and programs at www.kheaa.com
- Visit www.focuscareer.ky.gov for education, employment and economic development information. Create a resume while you visit the site to ensure you are notified of job opportunities.
- Contact a Workforce Investment Act (WIA) career counselor at your local One-Stop Career Center for information on the Dislocated Worker Program. To find the nearest One-Stop Career Center, link to www.servicelocator.org or call 1-877-US2-JOBS.
- Finally, before enrolling in a training institution, notify an unemployment insurance representative in the One-Stop Career Center to ensure that you can continue to receive unemployment benefits while enrolled in the program you have chosen. Not every training program excuses you from the requirement that you are “seeking and available for work” in order to receive unemployment benefits.
