Have you heard about the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Program?
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) offers an integrated and comprehensive range of services consisting of workforce development activities benefiting job seekers—adults, dislocated workers, youth, incumbent workers, new entrants to the workforce, veterans, individuals with disabilities—and employers.
WIOA’s objective is to meet employers’ needs by increasing employment, job retention, earnings, and occupational skills among all job seeker populations. Job seekers first must meet WIOA eligibility requirements to receive WIOA-funded services. More information on the WIOA program may be viewed on the WIOA orientation video below. All applicants must watch the orientation video prior to contacting a case manager or attending an eligibility determination meeting.
Intellectual Point has been working with students from the WIOA program with great success. We offer a great range of IT and Cyber Security Training that can help push your career to new heights. Be sure to apply for this program and request our training after you get approved.
To keep employees and our community healthy and safe, they have postponed in person Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) meetings, though they are still prepared to provide services through alternative methods including telephone, and the use of online technology such as GoToMeeting, Skype, Facetime, etc. if possible.
