TRAINING BENEFITS
INFORMATION
The Training Benefits program
If you are approved for the program, it will:
• Help you train for a high-demand occupation if you can’t get a job with your current skills.
• Pay additional weeks of unemployment benefits. (Training Benefits pays 52 times your weekly
benefit amount, minus regular unemployment benefits paid.) You must pay for your own books,
tuition, and school related fees.
• Waive your job search requirements.
Modifying an approved training plan
If you need to change your approved training plan, do not use this application. Instead, fill out a
Request to Modify Training Plan application, which you can get at your local WorkSource office or from
our website at
esd.wa.gov/jobs-and-training/training-benefits-modification
Eligibility
You must be eligible for unemployment benefits or have used up your benefits. We will use your
application to decide whether your current job skills show that you need more training. We also will
make sure that at least one of the following applies to you:
• Your occupation is considered in decline in your local labor market area.
• You are currently a member of the Washington State National Guard.
• You were honorably discharged from the military or Washington State National
Guard in the last 12 months.
• You are disabled and not able to return to work in your main occupation.
• You are a low-income worker.
• You are a dislocated worker, which means:
o
You were laid off because your employer permanently reduced operations; or
You were separated from an occupation that is considered in decline in your
o
local labor market area; or
You were laid off as the result of the lease and permit restrictions relating to
o
reducing escape of non-native finfish.
Application deadlines
• If you are a dislocated worker, you must apply for and enroll in training before the end of your
benefit year (the 52-week period when you can receive unemployment benefits).
• If you are not a dislocated worker, you must apply within 90 days of applying for unemployment
benefits and enroll within 120 days. If we find that the training is not available within the 120
days, you must enter training as soon as it is available.
We will deny your training benefits if you do not meet these deadlines, unless you show good reason.
We always will deny your training benefits if you are a dislocated worker and you apply for training
benefits after your benefit year has expired.

INFORMATION
Commissioner Approved Training waives your job search requirements.
If you are not approved for Training Benefits or Commissioner Approved Training, you must keep
looking for work to be eligible for regular unemployment benefits. You also must be available to work
hours that are usual for your occupation. We will use your Training Benefits application to see if your
school schedule conflicts with working hours that are usual for your occupation. If there is a conflict, we
will deny your regular unemployment benefits.

about if you’re available for work while you’re in training.
