This paper analyzes the returns to training that was co-financed by a German training voucher program. The estimation strategy compares outcomes of participants in voucher training with voucher recipients who intended to participate in training, but did not do so because of a random event like course cancellation by the provider of training. While there is no impact of voucher training on wages and employment, there is evidence that after training participation individuals are more often engaged in nonroutine analytic tasks.
