The paper analyzes re-training programs provided by public employment offices in Russia with the stress on their potential role during economic crisis. Net impacts of the programs are estimated using a rigorous quasi-experimental evaluation technique. The study is based on follow-up surveys in two Russian regions. Propensity score approach is utilized to estimate overall and group treatment effects. It turns out that the impact of re-training programs in the Russian regions is statistically insignificant both for wages and for employment. There is no positive overall effect found for the programs that is in contradiction with the perception of the employment officers. There is no overall negative effect as well that is against the view of some experts. The overall effect comprises positive and negative group effects.
