    A start would be knowing your skills and interests as well as education level and certificates. Got a high school diploma or GED certificate?

    My best advice is to apply for as many training program as you can and see what happens. Have you tried already and been denied entrance? What state are you in as most every state has a program to help felons.

    Is there a community college in your county? They probably have a (cooking?) certificate program or separate adult ed program that you could get into. Call the main number and ask for the dean's office or Admissions, or check their web site.

    It should not stop you from going to most colleges. You need to call and talk with the admission department
