Repeat J1 trainee visa

Asked 9 months ago - Carlsbad, CA

I am currently on a J1 trainee visa for 18 months, once this had finished can I repeat the j1 trainee visa with the same company assuming my training will be further advanced? As I am not subject to the two year residency requirement, can I file within my 30 day grace period after my first 18 months, to avoid having to return back to the UK?
