Training Services


Some people struggle to find work because they either lack the necessary skills for available jobs or their skills are out-of-date in today’s high-tech workplace.  For individuals considering changing careers, training funds may be available if they are considering entering a high demand profession.  The easiest way to receive details on all the services available, including training programs, is to attend a system orientation at OhioMeansJobs Lucas County.

One-Stop System Orientation

Whether you are interested in becoming a truck driver, Licensed Practical Nurse, Information Technology professional or other workers with high-growth career opportunities, it is recommended you attend a workshop that will give you all the information you need about job training programs funded by partners of OhioMeansJobs Lucas County.  Also, you will learn about WorkReady Lucas County, available job search assistance and other information designed to help you find a job or move your career to the next level.

Orientations are currently held every Monday at 10 AM at OhioMeansJobs Lucas County, 1301 Monroe Street in Downtown Toledo.  Advance registration is not required to attend this workshop. If you are not able to attend an Orientation, please stop by OhioMeansJobs Lucas County for a personal overview of available services or fill out this form and we will contact you.
For a complete listing of workshops offered at OhioMeansJobs Lucas County, please call 419-213-JOBS (5627) or check out the OhioMeansJobs Lucas County event calendar.

Individual Training Accounts

An Individual Training Account is one of the primary methods for financing education programs designed to address current skill gaps.  Training is provided by approved colleges, universities and schools and the potential student is encouraged to select the one that best fits their needs, schedules, and finances. Not everyone qualifies for an Individual Training Account and assistance is subject to available funding.

On-the-Job Training

Unlike the formal training received through an Individual Training Account, On-the-Job Training takes place after a worker is hired and while they are on the job.  Although the new employee is benefiting from the training provided by the employer and delivered by an experienced co-worker, the company benefits by being reimbursed for a portion of the wages paid during training.  This program provides an incentive for the company to hire a worker who may lack important skills but can learn them while working.
