Trade Act Students:
If you are a student receiving benefits from a Trade Act program, I am more than happy to assist you in mapping out the required classes and expenses for your degree or certificate program. However, please note that Your Trade Act Representative is the only person who can approve your educational plan. Also, please check with your Trade Act Representative if you are unsure of what benefits are available to you or how to access those benefits (I do not have access to that information).
For more information on Trade Act, please go to Worksource Oregon's Trade Act page.
Often Trade Act students are asked to find out information about wages and job positions. Oregon's Labor Market Information System (OLMIS) can be helpful in obtaining this information. To go to their website, please go to www.qualityinfo.org.
Trade Act students should follow the "Getting Started" steps listed above on this page. If you need further help or have additional questions, please feel free to contact me. Since Trade Act paperwork often takes significant time to complete, it is highly advisable to make an appointment with me rather than dropping by.
