Citizens Employment and Training (CET) is a non-profit agency in west central Wisconsin that helps unemployed older workers get the training and experience they need to find jobs. We provide paid on-the-job training, basic computer skills training and individual evaluation and counseling. For more than 35 years we have been helping people break out of poverty and connect to their communities through work. To find out about paid on-the-job training click here.

We serve the following Wisconsin counties: Dunn, Eau Claire, Barron, Chippewa, Taylor, Clark, Wood and Portage. For information about similar programs in other areas click here.
Our paid training program, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP), dates from the Older Americans Act of 1965 and has been very popular with both our Senior Interns and the non-profits they serve. SCSEP is funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor (USDOL) through Senior Service America, Inc., a national SCSEP contractor. SCET also partners with city and county governments, the United Way of the Greater Chippewa Valley, and non-profits throughout our eight-county area. All SCET programs are equal opportunity programs.
