While DUA will not require you to submit attendance sheets, DUA staff does conduct audits of training programs to ensure that students are maintaining satisfactory attendance. You must also continue to sign in using TeleCert or WebCert every week in order to continue to receive your benefit checks by mail.
What Happens During School Breaks
During scheduled school breaks each no longer than three weeks you may continue to be eligible for benefits provided you attend school immediately prior to and immediately after each break.
According to regulation, the waiver of the worksearch requirement is not available to a claimant during a school break that exceeds three weeks. Claimants may collect unemployment during school breaks that are more than three weeks under the following circumstances:
- The claimant is not on the Section 30 extension of benefits, but is still collecting benefits from the regular state claim.
- The claimant conducts an active worksearch, maintains a record of worksearch activities, applies for and accepts suitable work, if a job offer is made.
If Your Training is Part-Time
You may attend school on a part-time basis while you are collecting UI benefits if:
- The course is less than 20 classroom hours or 11 semester hours per week;
- You maintain an active work search;
- You continue to be available for work, able to work and are actively looking for a job.
