Dedicated Training Classes are funded when the demand for training in a specific geographical area exceeds the training capacity of current training providers. The Workforce Development Division (WDD) may enter into contracts with training providers including postsecondary schools to conduct standalone classes serving WIOA participants in specific occupations such as welding, construction trades, etc.  Once training activities and service providers are identified and approved by the appropriate Local Workforce Development Board, staff negotiates budgets, prepares contracts, and provides technical assistance to implement the new training programs.
