        Hi Ronnie, I'm Kurt.
        I did Voc Rehab in the mkid 90's. The evaluation and recmmendation
        process is absurdly expensiv e and nolt at all helpful, but the
        training money is real. As long as you jump through the necessary
        hoops to get past the contracters that are meant to recommend a course
        of training for you. Play their games, take their sorry ass little
        tests, but be certain that you've done your homework and you'll get
        the training you want and need.

          Kurt thank you. I think that vocational rehab would be a fine idea if
          it works right. I told my rehab man my picks for school and none were
          no good. I wanted to go to a 2 year school and he said that it would
          be to much unecessarry education. Things such as english, math and
          science are classes he said that don't help me get skilled. I just
          wish I knew a way to make sure that I would get all that I'm entitled
          to. Thank you again Ronnie--- In owcp@yahoogroups.com, "krcorwin"

            Once again it's been a number of years since my retraining
            experience but I was in my mid forties at the time and preferred the
            shorter route to job training myself so I took a one year computer
            programming certification course which frankly got me a reasonably
            well paying job without it beding necessary to take the general ed
            courses necessary to complete a degree program. As you may or may
            not know many computer industry job qualifications are expressaed by
            vendor certification rather than traditional university
            matriculation, so preparing for and taking tests offered by the
            likes of Microsoft or Intuit or Macromedia can offer a fast track to
            some pretty satisfying career
            Good Luck
            Kurt

            I have not yet gotten to the retraining part of the program, but my impression is that they want to give you the least amount of training that you ll need to

              I have not yet gotten to the retraining part of the
              program, but my impression is that they want to give you
              the least amount of training that you'll need to get a
              job. One of my dad's friends was in either the same or a
              similar program. He was no longer able to work as a PHD
              in electrical engineering (because of problems with his
              hands), and they wanted to retrain him as a barber. If
              you have a specific job that you think you should be
              trained for (and a good argument as to how it is
              equivalent to your previous job), you will probably have
              better luck getting that training than if you tell them
              that you want to go to a 2 year school. If you go into a
              vocational training program at a community college, you
              might be able to squeeze in the other classes.

              Good luck! -- Felicia

                -I'm getting surgery in 2 days to fix my injury. What's crazy is the
                fact that my rehab man and rehabilitaion specialist at owcp have gone
                and signed me up for computer aided design classes sceduled to start
                in January. These guys are hell bent on getting me off the owcp
                benefits. I didn't even pick out this training. My rehab man did. If
                I can't go in January My rehab man is going to see if I can take
                internet classes. They are crazy. They don't care about nothing. I'm
                looking forward to the day I'm through with these owcp people. They
                are awful. -- In owcp@yahoogroups.com, "Felicia" <felicia@...> wrote:
