Training & Education

Apply for WIOA Training and Education

The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIOA) established a “customer choice” approach to services through a system of Individual Training Accounts (ITAs). WIOA funding is available to eligible and suitable clients who require additional skills in order to obtain self-sufficient employment. Under this Act, local workforce areas are required to fund only areas of study that have a high probability of resulting employment of a self-sufficient wage. Local WIOA staff review training providers and programs on a regular basis to ensure only those programs which have been determined to lead to long-term self-sufficient employment are available for funding.

Many factors are considered before a determination is made that a client will be approved for WIOA funding. Local WIOA case managers will help examine which training programs are viable options for individual clients. Such factors include prior education, experience, personal goals, barriers, individual/family self-sufficiency, and individual probability of success. Some programs have special considerations for approval and enrollment.
