      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.

        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 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:
