There are a few ways to pay for training and retaining, you have to know where to look.
1.) Financial Aid-if you enroll in an accredited degree college program, you may apply for aid. See the colleges financial aid personnel to determine what is available to you, then fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid. This student aid provides loans up to $12,500 a year for under grads, $20,500 a year for graduate programs. Some colleges are offering free or discounted tuition to the unemployed. If you dont possess a bachelors degree, you may get a grant. Quick training programs you see on T.V. that dont lead to degrees dont qualify for the above mentioned program. Caution: beware of scams aimed at students seeking financial aid. Don’t pay for a list of “guaranteed scholarships”, those are not legitimate.
