Get Back to Work!
Free training available.
Forsyth Tech has once again received funding to help retrain unemployed North Carolinians for both employment and new careers through a program called “North Carolina Back to Work.” If you have exhausted your unemployment benefits or are not currently working, you may qualify for this program.
Students who enter the program receive job training and retraining, employability skills, advising and counseling—at no cost—and they may also become eligible for industry-recognized, third-party credentials. The program will pay registration fees, books and certification costs for approved classes that can lead to jobs. In addition, the program provides one-on-one academic advising and career coaching to help get those unemployed back to work.
Courses and training are available for:
- Certified Electronic Health Records Specialist
- Electrical Lineman
- Facility Maintenance Technician
- Welding (ARC, MIG, TIG)
If you are a military veteran or member of the NC National Guard, please visit the veterans’ Back-to-Work Training for Employment page.
