      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:
