Occupational Skills Training

Through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), we may be able to fund eligible individuals with short-term skills training or on-the-job training to prepare for in-demand careers. WIOA is designed to help individuals' 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 may be made available to individuals after completion of an Application for Training with eligibility documentation, and a pre/post-test formalized assessment.

The goal of any training through WIOA is to lead to an industry-recognized certification, license, credential, or degree, and should lead individual to employment at a self-sufficient wage. All training must be less than 24 months, with an emphasis on 9-12 month programs. WIOA training must be provided through an eligible training provider on the Workforce Inventory of Education and Training system.

How to Get Started

How to get started in 2 easy steps:

Step 1: Complete Application for Training

Step 2: Contact a Career Planner at OhioMeansJobs Wayne County to schedule your one-on-one appointment (330) 264-5060.

Things to Keep in Mind

Things to keep in mind:

Training services provided are determined on a case-by-case basis of eligibility and appropriateness. Not all eligible job seekers submitting Application for Training will receive training services. WIOA is not an entitlement program; an individual may be eligible but not appropriate for WIOA funding. Appropriateness will be determined by a review of barriers, work history, labor market information, and existing skills and interests.

History

The OhioMeansJobs center was established to provide a one-stop location where workers may find various tools and programs related to getting and keeping jobs. As a result, many programs and organizations participate within the OhioMeansJobs center to offer career help and other benefits through one central point or location.

Your local OhioMeansJobs-Wayne County center receives federal funds to operate The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) to assist individuals with career and training services. WIOA envisions a workforce development system that is customer-focused on both the individual and business by aligning federal and state programs into one comprehensive center. Through the OhioMeansJobs Wayne County center you will have access to a variety of career services through partners, which includes, but not limited to career counseling, budgeting (financial literacy), digital job searching, interviewing, and employment opportunities.
