The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) is designed to provide an efficient, effective and convenient system for job seekers to find jobs and employers to locate new workers.  By streamlining services through a one-stop local delivery system, customers can go to one place to get answers to their questions.

Services offered through WIA include:

Career Assessment
Resume' Development
Job Seeking Skills
Remedial and Basic Skills Training
Career Counseling
Development of Individual Employment Plan
Upgrade Computer Skills

For those who may be eligible, training services may also be available.  

Classroom Training:  Conducted in a classroom setting, institutional skills training provides the technical skills and information required to perform a specific job.  Typically, this type of training leads to a certificate, diploma, or degree.  Individuals choosing this type of training are required to select a program and training provider from a list of eligible training providers.  Financial assistance with tuition and fees may be available to those who qualify.

On-the-Job Training:  OJT offers training in an actual work situation that has career advancement potential.  This allows the participant to develop specific occupational skills or to obtain specialized skills required by an individual employer.

All WIA activities and training are designed to equip individuals to enter the workforce and retain employment.
