Second Career

Ontario

Second Career is an Ontario government program that enables laid-off Ontarians to train for a new job in high-demand careers.

Second Career helps people get the training or education they need to get a good job. It is a cost-sharing grant provided on the basis of need, so you may be asked to contribute what you can to your training or education. It may provide financial support up to $28,000 to pay for things like:

  • Tuition
  • Books
  • Living expenses
  • Help caring for dependents
  • Travel
  • Transportation
  • Disability supports
  • Basic living allowance (during skill training)

Additional costs may be considered for disability accommodation, dependent care, living away from home and academic upgrading.

Skills training for up to two years in duration will be considered. If academic upgrading or English as a Second Language training is required as a prerequisite to skills training, the total training period can be up to three years.

IF you accepted EI, you may qualify for:

  • between six months and two years of skills training for National Occupational Classification (NOC) skill level B and equivalent occupations in demand in Ontario
  • up to one year of academic upgrading where necessary as a prerequisite for skills training.

Non-EI-eligible individuals may qualify for:

  • up to two years of skills training for either NOC skill level B or NOC skill level C occupations and equivalent in demand in Ontario

Testimonials

I learned about Weltech during a trades career fair and did some research into the welding profession in the Spring of 2013. Weltech offered a comprehensive 7 week course with a strong focus on the major welding techniques, personal instruction, small class sizes, and hands on training.

I just finished the Combination Welding Program in Weldtech Training which lasted 7 weeks. The program contained : GMAW , SMAW, GTAW, and blueprint reading.

I went to Weldtech to take the welder combo course with FluxCore added on to do some upgrading and recertify. Previously, in 1998, I went to a different school and wasted 6 months and a small fortune. At my previous school, all I learned was how to pass a T.S.S.A. welding test.
