Through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), we can help fund eligible job seekers with educational programs or on-the-job training to prepare them for in-demand careers. WIOA is designed to help job seekers access employment, education, training, and supportive services to succeed in the labor market and to match employers with the skilled workers they need to compete in the global economy.
Training is provided by the educational institutions approved by the state of Ohio. The WIOA program is NOT an entitlement program and all participants must meet the eligibility and suitability criteria before Individual Training Account (ITA) services can be issued. To see if you are eligible, you can 1) review the Orientation slides, fill out the forms below completely and call (419) 999-0360 to schedule and informational appointment with a Caseworker or 2) Attend an Orientation held on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Call 419-999-0360 to set up an appointment.
In addition, special funding for training and education is available to dislocated workers who have lost their job through layoffs, plant closings or foreign competition.
