Please stop by or call our program assistant at 732-240-5995 ext. 5605 to schedule an appointment. The program assistant will provide you with an application to take home and fill out as well as a copy of our Application Documentation Requirements, which lists all the required and acceptable forms of documentation you need to provide in order to determine eligibility for services. This documentation includes proof of income for the last six months. Please keep in mind this is an income eligible service and after reviewing all application documentation it may be determined that you are not eligible. You may bring the documents and your completed application with you at your next scheduled appointment. Please download and complete the application and document requirements forms.
You will first be scheduled for an appointment to come back and meet with an intake worker. Please come prepared with the completed application and all of the required documentation, this is important as we cannot determine your eligibility for training without this information. Your intake worker will review your documentation with you and ask you any additional questions to determine your eligibility. If you are determined eligible you will be given your next appointment for orientation. Please keep in mind, appointments for orientation will not be given until all eligibility documentation is provided and eligibility is determined.

The orientation is a scheduled group activity (90 minutes) that is a requirement for all customers seeking occupational training or education. At the orientation you will be provided with information regarding our agency’s services as well as other services and resources you may or may not be aware of. You will be utilizing the computer and should have a basic knowledge and understanding of how to use the internet. The instructor will take you through websites you can use to research occupations that are in demand and related training programs. Customers who do not arrive on time will need to be rescheduled. Once you have attended orientation, you will meet with our program assistant who will schedule your next appointment for assessment.
On the day of your scheduled assessment you will have the opportunity to meet one on one with a counselor. You and your counselor will discuss your educational and work history and how they align with your current career goals. With the guidance of your counselor we hope that you will be able to identify a training course that is suitable based on your skills, interests, and expectations.
Prior to receiving any referrals for training you will be required to take a basic skills test. The test includes an assessment of your knowledge of basic reading and math skills. Your counselor will schedule you for this appointment and go over what the necessary score is for the program of interest. Don’t be scared! We will work with you and offer any additional services you may need if it has been awhile since you have taken a test!
