  • the learner resides in a different community from the place of training, and 
  • there is no public transportation between the communities

The learner submits either a Learner Income Support Application (Full Time Study) or a Change in Circumstances for Learners form with an Additional Continuous Benefits form to the Learner Income Support Office (LISO) requesting the benefit.
