Job Search Assistance is implemented through the Workforce Center’s Intensive Services which encompasses a range of assistance that is designed to improve your job search and position you for success. To maximize your full potential, you are assigned a one on one Workforce Development Specialist to coach and strategize opportunities by attending “free” workshops, participating in cover letter and resume instructing and mock interviews until you are gainfully employed.
 
 

 
 
 

 
 
The Pikes Peak Workforce Center currently offers four options to help you upgrade your skills through training:
1. Adult Program Funding
2. Dislocated Workers
3. Regular Approved Training
4. On-the-Job Training
 
Please click on the links below for more information about each program.

The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Adult Program provides short-term occupational training assistance and/or career counseling to those over 18 who need to upgrade their skills to find suitable employment. Funding is limited and you must meet eligibility requirements. For more info, click on the green link above.


 A Dislocated Worker is a person who lost his/her job through no fault of their own. Funds for training through the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Dislocated Worker program are limited. You must meet eligibility requirements. For more info, click the green link above.

Regular Approved Training is a status available to Unemployment Insurance (UI) and Extended Unemployment Compensation (EUC) claimants who are attending a training program. This status allows a person’s job contacts to be waived while they are attending training without disqualifying them from receiving benefits. Click on the green link above for more information.

 
ON-THE-JOB TRAINING
Thank you for your interest in our On-The-Job Training Program. Pikes Peak Workforce Center is currently in the process of expanding and improving our program! While we are working on improvements we are not able to offer the On-the-Job Training Program until July 21, 2014. However, we are happy to answer any questions you may have. If you are a job seeker, please contact Clinton Cooper at 719-667-3802 and employers may contact Dana Barton at 719-667-3870.

Are you newly unemployed, laid off through no fault of your own? Filed for or receiving unemployment benefits? If eligible, you may qualify for services that could help you return to work more rapidly. For more information, click on the green link above.
