Workforce Development Career Training Online

New Jersey Congressman, Rush Holt, has introduced legislation to provide grants of up to $100 000 to states that implement or enhance online workforce investment courses.

The bill will also establish a center for excellence in online job training to encourage technology-driven teaching.

The Workforce Investment Act (WIA) became law in August 1998 to consolidate and streamline the nation’s employment and training. WIA authorizes Federal funds to provide the employment, training and career planning services through a system of one-stop career centers that offer job training and job search help.
