Classroom Training offers the client a formalized setting for a skill acquisition. The classroom may be in a vocational-technical school, a trade school, or other state approved training program. The Classroom training includes a wage stipend up to forty hours per week, unless the participant is receiving public assistance or unemployment insurance.
On-the-Job training may be offered to some employers when the cost of that training can be underwritten by KFP. A client receiving On-The-job Training is paid a wage by the employer who in turn is reimbursed up to 50%by KFP for the cost of that training. The reimbursement level is negotiated with each individual employer to meet their situation, and then there is a formal contract drawn. Included in the contractual agreement is the obligation on the part of the employer to hire the trainee upon successful completion of the training.
This option is especially useful to young clients or those who have not been participating in the public workforce for an extended period. This provides an opportunity to those who need to become accustomed to basic work requirements. It promotes the development of good work habits and basic work skills at the work site. KFP pays the trainee’s wage & workmen’s comp for the training period.
