Learn more about the Local Training Finder.

Local Training Finder lets you search for training in your local area.

How do I get started?

Enter a keyword for the type of job training or program you want to find. Once you start typing, you'll see some names appear below the box. Click on the one that best matches what you are looking for. (If you don't see what you are looking for, try typing another keyword.)

Then enter your city, state, or ZIP code, and click "Search."

On the next page, you'll find a list of schools that offer that type of training program.

You can see:

  • The school name (click the name to visit the school's website)
  • The program name
  • The length of time it usually takes students to complete the program
  • The number of people who graduated from the program

What can I do with the results?

  • Information about a program. Find it by:
