Skills Training

The Workforce Development Board of Solano County (WDB) connects individuals to training opportunities that can help jump start their career. Individuals can complete training that leads to an in-demand occupation through our network of approved training providers through the Career Training Track. 

As a job seeker interested in obtaining occupational skills training, you may receive career guidance and possibly financial assistance to help with your training-related costs through the Career Training Track, such as:

  • Tuition and fees of the training provider
  • Books and supplies required to be used in training
  • Uniforms and tools required while in training
  • Certification/licensure fees required after completion of training

Job Seekers Interested in Training Assistance must:

  • Meet eligibility requirements for the Adult programs.
  • Be deemed suitable for training (likely to succeed and gain employment upon completion, as determined by an Employment Specialist).
  • Participate in training that is on WDB’s list of Eligible Training Providers.
  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) when enrolling in programs that are eligible for federal financial aid.
  • Meet admission requirements of the training provider and be accepted into the training program of interest.
  • Be willing to provide progress documentation and connect with your Employability Specialist at least monthly.
  • Share the good news when you land a job!
  • Commit to allow a Retention Specialist follow-up with you periodically for about a year after you start your new career.
