Oklahoma Training: What you need to know

Effective July 1, 2015, the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) supersedes the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) and amends the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act, the Wagner-Peyser Act, and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Like its predecessor, the WIOA is a federal workforce development law that provides for state and federal employment, education, job training, and support services. The law is designed to help jobseekers access employment, education, training, and support services and to match employers with the skilled workers they need.
For further information, see the Department of Labor’s WIOA website atwww.doleta.gov/WIOA.
Employers that train workers through this system are eligible for grants, significant tax credits, and other benefits. Additional information on the federal WIOA is available.
