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. 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.

These 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.
