Approved Training Vendors and Targeted Occupations Lists
The WIOA program is geared towards customer choice. Individuals who are interested in training services or licensure assistance are invited to review and research the options presented on our approved vendor and targeted occupations lists.

After 7/1/2016, WIOA Adults and Dislocated Workers should utilize the Priority Training Targeted Occupations List when selecting a training program. This list was developed after extensive research into our local, regional, and statewide labor and job market. In addition, our Board of Directors, which consists of local business experts, have reviewed and approved this list.

Individuals interested in licensure assistance through the WIOA program should utilize the Local Targeted Occupations List when reviewing to see if licensure fees are able to be covered under the WIOA program.

All three lists are updated on an annual basis. Training vendor and program selections must fall on the lists noted below in order to be considered for enrollment through the WIOA program.
