WORKERS -
Did you know your TAA training benefits never expire? If you were laid off of a TAA certified company, you and haven’t taken advantage of training benefits, you may be able to take advantage of this great opportunity to upgrade your current skills or learn new ones.

Are you facing layoffs or having to reduce your employee’s hours? Maybe it isn’t just the economy. Let TAA help you find out if it’s because of foreign trade. If so, having your company certified could provide your employees with additional benefits not available to most workers. Please contact Heidi Carlson, heidi.carlson@alaska.gov or call (907) 465-1805 for more information.
