Have any of you who are involved with Trade Act dealt with the following

We are getting questions, from the field  relating to individuals in TAA
approved training programs that include periods of time of paid "work
experience" embedded in the training.   Are these claimants eligible for
UC and/or TRA during these weeks of paid work experience?  Is this part
of the "training" or "other scheduled activities", or would these
individuals be ineligible for these weeks (even if only working a
limited number of hours) for the week under the prohibition of payments
while on OJT?  

Do you see any other issues and solutions?

Thanks JP
