Individual Training Accounts (ITA) comprise the majority of training provided for Adults, Youth, and Dislocated Workers. The ITA’s are basically individual training accounts awarded to WIOA eligible individuals which provide educational/occupational skill training services, with maximum funding limits set by the Local Boards and adjusted as needed with Board approval. Postsecondary education institutions and private training entities which offer instruction leading to generally recognized certification in high demand, high growth, and high wage occupational skills and other institutions providing similar educational services are among the entities approved to receive WIOA funding.

To be eligible as a WIOA Training Provider, institutions must apply for and be approved for the State Eligible Training Provider list. The Workforce Development Division is responsible for the review, approval, and tracking of all five local area participants served via the ITA activity.

For those looking to enhance their job skills or find employment, sometimes new job training can help provide a needed boost. To search for available training programs, financial aid and other resources, visit the Eligible Training Provider List website at www.etpl.alabama.gov or go your local Career Center to apply. Persons must be certified eligible and meet requirements at the Career Center. They will not receive funds directly. The training provider receives funds for required training cost.
