Training Benefits Program Annual Report and Net Impact Studies

Our annual reports to the Washington State Legislature provide an update on the Training Benefits Program. In addition, a 2012 net-impact analysis shows how the program affects the earnings of participants.

The Training Benefits Program pays extended unemployment benefits to eligible participants while they attend approved training to learn new job skills. It does not directly pay for tuition or training-related expenses. Learn more about the Training Benefits Program.

2013 Training Benefits Program Annual Report and Net Impact Studies

These annual reports provide a baseline for legislators and policy-makers to measure the effects of policy changes to the Training Benefits Program.

The reports cover:

  •   Participant demographics.

  •   How long people typically received training benefits.

  •   Type of training received.

  •   Participant employment and wage history.

  •   Administrative costs.

Data in this report are primarily from three sources: Employment Security’s administrative records, a survey of program participants conducted by Employment Security and training data from the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges (SBCTC).
