Training Opportunities for Unemployed Individuals

Trident Technical College (TTC) Division of Education is offering a limited number of state-funded scholarships for workforce training programs (until funds are expended). This special program for individuals currently receiving unemployment benefits is in conjunction with the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund.

Below are the eligible TTC programs. Take a moment to read through the descriptions and requirements so you can determine which program is the best fit for you. Not all classes are available year-round, so please check back periodically for updates to our schedule. When you’re ready to get started, follow the application link below.


TTC offers a wide range of programs and program lengths including short-term workforce training, two-year degree programs, one-year certificates and more. Scholarships and other forms of financial aid are available, making many of our programs free of charge.


Thank you for coming to Trident Tech for your workforce training.
