PRINCE GEORGE’S COUNTY LOCAL TRAINING PROVIDER LIST WORKFORCE INNOVATION AND OPPORTUNITY ACT (WIOA)

The Prince George’s County Workforce Development Board, appointed by the Prince George’s County Executive, serves as the governing body of the Prince George’s County Public Workforce System, modeled and branded as the Prince George’s County American Job Center Community Network. The Board contracts with skilled and qualified contractors to provide Career Services to job seekers by utilizing a multitude of funding sources, including WIOA Title I and the American Rescue Plan Act. A Prince George’s County American Job Center Community Network Career Services Provider, contracted by the Prince George’s County Workforce Development Board, may contract for training services with training providers who have training programs listed on the Maryland Department of Labor’s Eligible Training Provider List or the Prince George’s County Local Training Provider List.

What is the Prince George's County Local Training Provider List?

The Prince George’s County Workforce Development Board operates the Prince George’s County American Job Center Community Network as a local public workforce system that leverages a braided funding model to support job seekers with skill development, training, wraparound support services and coaching that meets the personal needs of each program participant.

The Board’s approach to service delivery using multiple funding sources with loose or less restrictive eligibility requirements increases the pool of eligible job seeker participants and allows contracted Career Services Providers and Training Providers to offer services to job seekers who would otherwise be ineligible under WIOA eligibility standards. The board has increased the number of trainings offered and the diversity of training pathways for job seekers by creating the Local Training Provider List using this braided funded model.

The Prince George’s County Local Training Provider List is the list of training programs approved by the Prince George’s County Workforce Development Board that are eligible for tuition assistance from the Board’s contracted Career Services Providers, using non-WIOA funding. Training programs eligible for the Local Training Provider List include those that are registered on a state’s eligible training provider list (ETPL) along with state or USDOL Registered Apprenticeships. Non-traditional occupational skills training program, Industry Recognized Apprenticeships, pre-apprenticeships, professional certification, licensing courses, and Associate Degrees are eligible for the Prince George’s County Local Training Provider List as well.
