On the Job Training
Job related training services can help applicants to qualify and obtain high-demand jobs that lead to economic self-sufficiency. Training services are available to eligible youth, adults, and dislocated workers through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and selected training providers and partners across the state.
Funding assistance for these training services is primarily available through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), the Trade Assistance Act (TAA), and the On-the-Job Training (OJT). Sometimes, these funds may be leveraged with federal Pell grants and/or the Student Loan programs.
Training is available through selected and designated training providers or through an Individual Training Account (ITA) developed in partnership with a professional career center staff. Through this approach, after receiving core services and an individualized assessment, an ITA allows customers to choose appropriate training programs through an Eligible Training Provider (ETP) list. The ETP list helps ensure consumer protection and performance standards for training services. Program description, program length, cost, and provider contact information is all available online. For more information, call 1-866-765-5038.
