(4) meet all the other eligibility requirements for a Federal Pell Grant. Establishes a maximum amount, but no minimum amount, for such a Grant. Defines an eligible \"job training program\" as a career and technical education program at an IHE that: provides at least 150 clock hours of instructional time over a period of at least 8 weeks, provides training that meets the needs of the local or regional workforce, provides students who complete the program with a recognized educational credential, and the IHE has determined is sufficient to meet the hiring requirements of multiple employers and allow students to apply for any licenses or certifications that may be required for employment in the field for which the job training is offered.
