While Your Application is Being Processed

  1. Make sure your chosen career area is on the ARWDB Occupations Options list and that the school and training program you want to attend is on the Eligible Training Providers List (ETPL).
  2. Download the Training Program Research Form. Use it to compare schools and review the training considerations as you select your career goal and your training provider.

Demand Occupations List

This list serves as a guide for in-demand jobs and is not meant to be an all-inclusive list of acceptable WIOA funded occupational skills training options. There may be additional occupations in which demand occurs based on the job market or specific opportunities within the broad spectrum of occupations. This list includes occupations that show a favorable mix of projected long-term job growth, projected annual job openings, and median wages. WIOA participants seeking training in an occupation not on this Demand Occupations List may discuss the appropriateness and relevance of the proposed training with their career advisor for additional consideration (approval is at the discretion of the Local Workforce Development Board).
