null Can a claimant go to school or attend training while receiving unemployment benefits?
It depends on the type and timing of the training. A claimant in an approved training course is eligible to receive unemployment benefits as long as they continue to meet all the requirements of that program, reporting progress as requested. A claimant taking classes that are not classified as approved training must continue to look for work and be available for work in order to receive unemployment benefits, even if this interferes with their class schedule.
