I remember after 9/11 the gov't was helping displaced AMTs with retraining when the airlines took the big hit. Are they still offering retraining when you lose your job or is that a state by state thing? I've done a little googling but can't find anything. My company is relocating and I can't afford to move with them...and there's not much in the way of A&P jobs around here.

Cheers!

Go to the local unemployment office and ask about the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). It allows training for a new job or additional training in current occupation to gain employment.


After 9/11 the government increased the amount airline employees could get and added additional funding. While the additional funding is gone the WIA is still in place.

Thanks for the replies.

Company's moving from FWA to IND, and although 130 miles doesn't sound like much, it just doesn't work out for my family and me.
