Noncredit, continuing education programs at Rutgers can help open the door to new careers and opportunities for unemployed individuals who qualify for Workforce Development Grants. Currently, hundreds of Rutgers training programs are eligible for tuition grants through the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development.

Many Rutgers programs also accept workforce grants from other states for non-New Jersey residents.

Rutgers works with New Jersey One-Stop Career Centers across the state to assist unemployed workers in identifying appropriate training programs eligible for tuition assistance.

Alex Bruton served two years in Vietnam and 22 years as an Army reservist, but he faced one of his biggest challenges when two knee replacement surgeries left him unable to continue working on his feet as a cardiology technician.

Bruton sought help from the Veterans Administration, which referred him to the state Division of Vocational Rehabilitation services (DVR). That agency connected him with the ENABLE Division of Small & Associates of Livingston and ultimately with Rutgers’ Center for Continuing Professional Development (CCPD).

Through these two educational partners in the Rutgers ENABLED to Work program, Bruton has been able to train for a new career and enhance his marketability through job counseling.

With state grant funding paying his tuition, Bruton enrolled in an online training program through Rutgers’ CCPD last summer to become an electronic medical health records specialist.  He also received counseling through ENABLE on job-search and resume-writing skills and techniques.

Radon Training Program Helps People Expand Businesses, Build Careers

His home inspection business hurt by a sluggish economy, Michael Lloyd decided to branch out, gaining skills to fix a major concern in his South Carolina community: high levels of indoor radon.

Lloyd last year became nationally certified to mitigate radon – a gas estimated to cause 21,000 lung-cancer deaths a year in the United States – at Rutgers University’s Eastern Regional Radon Training Center (ERRTC), one of four such centers established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Lloyd, whose business is based in Moore, S.C., has completed 100 mitigation jobs since he became certified. “It turned things around,’’ the former Garden State resident said.
