COOL is short for Credentialing Opportunities On-Line. COOL can provide funding for active-duty service members to take training needed for civilian job opportunities. Each branch of the military has its own COOL program with its own requirements.
Check your branch of service for COOL Program details. Once you have obtained funding contact an ONLC Education Advisor at 1-800-288-8221 (weekdays) to get started on training.
For people thinking about changing their career or updating their skillsets or for those that are unemployed, you may be eligible to receive financial assistance from your local Department of Labor/Workforce Office. Workforce programs throughout the country may provide grants and other funding to offset the cost of training.
Workforce programs are generally county by county. Each agency has their own set of steps to an approval process. You must first contact your local workforce office to see if you qualify for assistance. Search the Internet for your Local Workforce Development Board that serves your county.
ONLC Training is authorized by many State Eligible Training Provider Lists (ETPL) and approved to accept Workforce funding from many States/Counties. Once you are approved for funding by your local workforce, they will give you access to a list of Eligible Training Providers. If you do not see Online Consulting dba ONLC Training Centers on the list please contact us so we can reach out to the agency on your behalf to investigate the process for approval.
ONLC has CareerPath Certification Programs available plus you can contact an ONLC Education Advisor at 1-800-288-8221 (weekdays) to discuss training.
Vocational Rehabilitation benefits include a host of services, including assistance with a new job search, occupational counseling, vocational retraining, and training sessions at a learning institution. The purpose is to help the injured worker get back to working and earning again. To qualify for federally funded vocational rehabilitation, you must: have a physical or mental condition that causes a "substantial impediment" to your ability to work, and. be able to benefit from VR services so that you can get a job.
ONLC has worked with many Voc Rehab offices to provide training. Each office has their own set of rules and regulations that they must follow in approving a vendor, so candidates need to check with their case manager to see if ONLC can help with your training needs.
Our company is known as both ONLC Training Centers (our DBA name) and Online Consulting (our incorporated name).

We can contact the funding agency to investigate their approval process and requirements for us to work with you.
You get quality and much more with ONLC. Our training is immersive with hands-on exercises and labs* to ensure you're really learning and will be able to apply your skills and knowledge on the job.
Our live classes are led and supported by professional instructors with decades of real-world experience plus years teaching adults. ONLC is an authorized training partner for many vendors (CompTIA, EC-Council, Microsoft technical to name a few) and many of our certification programs include an exam prep, exam voucher and other value-adds.
Self-study, e-learning format
In addition to our live, instructor-led training, we have ONLC On-Demand which are self-study, e-Learning courses. These courses let you learn new skills and technologies on your own schedule, at your own pace and from your own place.
On-Demand courses are typically a blend of video tutorials, hands-on labs and exercises to help you build your skills and knowledge. You work hands-on with the software—these are NOT demonstration courses. When purchased, you'll have 24/7 access to your online course for a set period of months. Details can vary by title, so course specifics are listed in the course outline.
Be sure to verify that this learning format is approved for your funding program before purchasing an ONLC On-Demand course. See ONLC On-Demand

* Government and Military funding programs are governed by those entities and thus subject to their requirements, restrictions, limitations, and deadlines with which ONLC must comply. ONLC does not offer nor can ONLC grant funding, exceptions, changes or extensions for these programs. These funding programs are not applicable for other discounts or offers from ONLC or third-parties. ONLC's live, Instructor-led classes not addressing specific software like Business Process courses will have less of a hands-on component and will be more lecture/presentation delivery.
