Kentucky Career Center

IN-PERSON UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE SERVICES ~

Employment and Unemployment Insurance (UI) in-person services are available at the Kentucky Career Centers located in Ashland and Morehead. Here are some things you need to know:

Only individuals with an appointment will have access to in-person UI services.
• You can schedule appointments at kcc.ky.gov.
• Appointments will fill up quickly. However, the appointments will be available on a rolling schedule so there will be new opportunities to schedule.
Masks are required. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided to you.
• Temperatures will be taken at the door prior to entrance. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 or higher, exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms, or has been in contact with a COVID positive person will need to reschedule for in-person and/or will be offered a virtual meeting at a later date.
The only person who can enter the building is the individual whose name is on the claim. We are not allowed to provide information to family and/or friends regarding the claim.  Due to limited space and COVID guidelines, family members and/or friends who accompany you to the meeting will be asked to wait in the vehicle.
You must have a valid government photo identification card (Driver’s License/Permit, State issued ID Card, Military ID, Passport) that you will present to staff prior to entering the building.
• Please arrive approximately 5 minutes prior to your appointment time. It is not necessary to arrive earlier as individuals will be called in the order of their appointments, and not in the order in which they arrive.  Individuals without appointments will not have access to in-person UI services.
• There are a significant number of jobs available in the local area.  Each individual will be given information regarding current job opportunities and how to apply.

Virtual Training Program

COMMONWEALTH CODERS WEB DEVELOPMENT 16-WEEK VIRTUAL TRAINING ~

This course is offered through the BC Skills Development Academy. The course prepares students for a career as a Junior Web Developer. This training started as a collaborative effort between South Central and Lake Cumberland workforce boards. The success of the spring 2021 course and the high demand of web developers across the nation led to the expansion to the following workforce areas: Bluegrass, Northern Kentucky, Lincoln Trail and TENCO.

While no previous computer/coding experience is required, algebra skills, internet access, along with a strong dedication to the program curriculum are highly recommended for applicants. After completing the training, individuals are ready to enter the workforce as a Junior Web Developer with most jobs averaging a salary of $60,000 or more in Kentucky. Assistance with job placement is also available.

The training is eligible for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act funds available through the local workforce boards. This results in many unemployed and underemployed individuals being eligible for funding to pay for the cost of the training and required supplies. The TENCO Workforce Development Board serves residents of the following counties: Bath, Boyd, Bracken, Fleming, Greenup, Lewis, Mason, Montgomery, Robertson and Rowan.

The 16-week training program is full-time, approximately eight hours a day, Monday through Friday.

This is a wonderful opportunity for rural Kentucky communities to become competitive in the world of information technology. The training is set to begin in January 2022. Only 50 spots are available, so check out the tutorials and complete the initial no-obligation interest survey today at commonwealthcoders.com.
