WIA (Workforce Investment Act) Workshop
The Jefferson County Workforce Investment Act Program is currently out of funding. Therefore, we are not currently bringing new participants onto our program. However, you may still complete the WIA Workshop form to be placed on our waiting list. We will contact you when additional becomes available.
What is the WIA Workshop? In order to be on the WIA program you must attend a WIA Workshop (which explains the program), and the steps required to be accepted on the Workforce Investment Act Program. You will need an up-to-date resume. You must complete an interest and aptitude assessment at the CAC. You will then need to complete two forms, which are given to you at the Workshop. The assessment and resume can be completed early. We can assist you with creating a resume.
