      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:
