Program offers retraining assistance for laid off NM workers

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Laid off, unemployed and dislocated workers are now eligible for thousands of dollars in tuition assistance for retraining programs via a partnership among Workforce Connection of Central New Mexico, Central New Mexico Community College and CNM Ingenuity.

Eligible applicants can receive up to $9,000 in tuition assistance and up to $15,000 if they pursue “stackable credentials,” such as taking a program and a related industry licensure training, a CNM news release said. The money can be used for a wide variety of programs including phlebotomy, residential HVAC and the college’s Deep Dive Coding Bootcamps.

The program is funded by $1.1 million in National Dislocated Worker grants awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor in the fall, according to CNM spokesman Brad Moore.
