Do they usually train a person before they start a new job? Or do they expect you to know what to do and jump?

I have been a cashier for the last 12 years. I’ve been attending college and should get an accounting clerk certificate at the end of this semester. I want to live my old job of 8 years and look for one as an accounting clerk but I’m so afraid of the change. And all of the jobs I have looked at require some experience. Do they usually train a person before they start a new job? Or do they expect you to know what to do and just jump in?
