Currently, there are no provisions under the PA UC Law or Federal TEUC Law for job training programs. A Federallyfunded program, the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) Program, does cover certain workers. The TAA Program provides for training and other benefits (including continuing unemployment benefits while in approved training) for workers whose jobs were affected by imports or job relocation to certain other countries. In order for you to be eligible for this program, workers must be laid off from a company that has a certified petition with the United States Department of Labor (along with other criteria).
