Worker Retraining for Private Career Schools and Colleges

The Worker Retraining (WRT) program plays a major role in Washington state’s economic development by providing funding for eligible dislocated and unemployed workers in training or retraining that will assist them in regaining employment. The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC) runs a competitive contracting process each spring and awards contracts for the upcoming fiscal year to selected private career schools and colleges (PCSC) to serve eligible students in this program.
