This website contains the State List of Occupational Training eligible for funding through the
federal Workforce Investment Act (WIA). This State
List includes more than 800 occupational programs offered by over 90 institutions (community colleges,
4-year colleges and universities, private career schools, and other training providers). The State List
also identifies over 50 prevocational Adult Education and Literacy activities overseen by the
Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing, and Regulation.
Funding for training listed on this website is provided to eligible individuals through WIA Individual
Training Accounts (ITA). Contact a
Local Workforce Investment Board "One Stop Center",
to receive employment counseling, determine your eligibility for WIA funding, and explore the
possibility of WIA funding for the training listed.
The tuition rates listed for programs offered by public colleges and universities are for residents
of the county or state where the college is located. Contact the institution for specific information
about tuition rates and admission policies for non-residents.
The State List of Occupational Training eligible for WIA funding is updated weekly. Each training
provider is responsible for notifying MHEC of changes to the information
displayed in the web listing. Local Workforce Investment Boards
(LWIB) can deny WIA funding for programs
with inaccurate program information displayed on the Maryland WIA State List.
