Train & Work in STEM

On-the-Job Training in Healthcare, Finance & STEM: Science, Technology, Engineering, Math

If you are a certified dislocated worker or are long-term unemployed (6+ months) employers can receive salary reimbursements of up to 75% while providing occupational skills training on the job in the STEM fields and health care.

All STEM occupations are eligible, including those in Information Technology (IT), Finance, Manufacturing, Engineering and health care.

Assistance is available for dislocated worker certification, job matching and training plan development.

People with education or experience -- including recent or pending college graduates -- in these fields are highly encouraged to apply. If you are a dislocated worker or long-term unemployed and have not worked in these fields before, contact staff about your transferable skills.

About Dislocated Workers:

Dislocated workers are certified by the CT Department of Labor as having been laid off or terminated or given notice of a lay-off or termination AND are eligible for or have exhausted unemployment insurance (UI), AND are unlikely to return to previous employment. Self-employed, displaced homemakers and military spouses may may also be certified, as well as some people who don't qualify for unemployment insurance benefits.
