Mohawk College and ABEA developed this program that  focuses on supporting access to training programs that take 52 weeks or less to complete. It used to be called Second Career but the government changed the name of the program to Better Jobs Ontario. The object of the course is to help you source and prepare all the documentation needed for a Better Jobs Ontario application. It also focuses on helping you assess whether you have the skills and the commitment needed to transition to a new career. 

This 12-part series was developed for displaced workers with little or no computer background. It is based on Windows 10. The material is available in PDF format (to use as is) or in an editable Word document. Lesson plans and learner copies of each lesson are available, along with a PPT slide deck for each.  

When you use these resources, you will need access to the Internet to complete some sections of the modules as there are links to videos and websites which contain supporting materials.
