The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a customer choice and occupational demand driven program. The programs demand driven approach may require shorter and targeted training in some cases and longer term in others, depending on specific skills and credentials identified as necessary by industry. The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program in NOT an entitlement program, all participants must meet the eligibility and suitability criteria before an Individual Training Account (ITA) for training services can be issued. All WIOA participants do not need formal classroom training to be employable. Some may need only a few classes of enhancement and others may need only soft skills enhancement. The local WIOA process flow is designed to ensure compliance is met prior to approval of ITA’s for training services.
WIOA counselors and the schools may be able to assist you in finding grants, loans and/or scholarships to help you pay for training costs; WIOA funding is last dollar funding. All customers MUST apply for a Pell Grant to use for schools that are PELL eligible. Attending an Orientation Session is the first step to enrolling. At this session you will learn about available training programs and eligibility requirements. Contact OhioMeansJobs Champaign County to sign up today.
