•  Triton Retraining Assistance Center (TRAC)


    The Triton Retraining Assistance Center (TRAC) has been in existence at Triton College since 1982. We were first funded under the Jobs Training Partnership Act (JTPA) and now under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA). Since its inception, TRAC has served more than 5,000 dislocated workers.

    To determine your eligibility to participate in the Triton Retraining Assistance Center under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), you need to provide the following documentation:

    • A letter of closure or layoff from your company. If you did not receive a letter from the company, you need to supply a W-2 or a check stub with your and the company name on it.
    • Your Unemployment Certification Letter. If your benefits have been exhausted, you need to provide the letter stating that fact.
    • The white or orange Job Service Card that the Unemployment Office gave you.
    • A picture ID.
    • A copy of your birth certificate.
    • You also may need to provide additional documentation for any of the following conditions:

      • If you were a veteran, you must provide a copy of your DD214 form.
      • If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must provide your green card.
      • If you were born outside the United States, but you are now a U.S. citizen, you must provide proof of citizenship.
      • If you are receiving public aid, you must provide the forms.

      • All males born on or after Jan. 1, 1960, are required by the federal law to have registered with the Selective Service System. The TRAC Office must verify your registration with them as a requirement of your eligibility to participate in a WIA program.
