North Dakota Unemployment Job Training
SkillBuildND helps Job Service reach out to unemployed, underemployed, or dislocated workers and connect them to training for specific in-demand occupations. Both veterans and Native Americans receive priority for the program. Whether training is provided by private training vendors or public entities, SkillBuildND can assist with the cost for tuition, books and fees.
SkillBuildND is a new program funded by the U.S. Department of Labor to help prepare eligible participants for jobs in North Dakota’s growing oil industry and building trades areas in which activity is expected to continue for years to come.
