WorkSource DeKalb will move its weekly training information sessions to Thursdays at 10 a.m. beginning Thursday, May 18. The last Tuesday orientation will be May 9. Sessions are held at WorkSource DeKalb’s office at 774 Jordan Lane, Decatur.
Training information sessions discuss Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) eligibility, training requirements, available resources and assessments. Individuals receive a training request questionnaire and receive an assigned career counselor to assist in the application process. Attendance is mandatory in order to access WIOA training.
WorkSource DeKalb administers various employment and training programs for adults, dislocated workers and youth ages 14-24. Occupational skills training funding through WIOA is available to DeKalb County residents and residents of other counties who were laid off from a DeKalb County employer. Through successful completion of WIOA training programs, individuals have opportunities to enhance their skills and become more marketable in the workplace.
WIOA is a federally-funded program. For more information regarding training information sessions or additional services at WorkSource DeKalb, visit www.worksourcedekalb.org or call 404-687-3400.
