Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA)
Adult and Dislocated Worker Training Program

The OhioMeansJobs Center of Shelby County has training funds available through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), a federal program, to help individuals upgrade their skills or train for a new career. Training may be completed through classroom training or through an On-The-Job Training Program. The goal of WIOA is to place individuals into employment with which they can adequately support themselves and their families. Funding is potentially available for Adults and Dislocated Workers.
