Adult Services

The Cape May County Division of Workforce Development One-Stop Center provides an array of job training, education and employment services at one location.

Specific services target unemployed and dislocated workers, youths, veterans, ex-offenders, age 55-plus, and those who have a physical or mental disability.

Education and training opportunities grants are available for in-demand jobs such as:

Dental Assistant • Computer Technology •  HVAC/Plumbing • Certified Nurse Assistant •  CDL• Culinary Arts • Skin Care Specialist • Welding • Pharmacy Technician • Cosmetology • Office Network Specialist • Electrician • Auto Mechanic • And many more in-demand careers and jobs .

Get Paid While Learning a Trade

The On-The-Job Training program provides an opportunity for unemployed workers to learn a new trade while being paid up to 26 weeks.  The goal is for workers to learn while on the job which can lead to full-time employment.

The One-Stop Center is staffed with an OJT specialist for those seeking more information and discuss current employers participating in the program.

The Cape May County One-Stop Center is funded under the Work Force Innovation Opportunity Act (WIOA), a federally funded training and job program that creates a new approach, providing workforce activities through statewide and local systems.

The program is not an entitlement. Rather, it is a grant program for  those who qualify—generally Adults, Dislocated Workers, and Older Youth (18-24)—that provides up to $4,000 for education and training opportunities in specific in-demand occupations that will lead to full-time employment.
