They are required to take full advantage of courses, workshops, resources and to obtain specialized certificates, if applicable, to enhance their skillsets and knowledge.  The trainees will be able to learn the skills needed and obtain ongoing support from our program, with the goal of transitioning into unsubsidized employment.
