Eligible Training Providers serve as approved training providers to individual customers enrolled in the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) program. By providing training to these customers, they assist the Piedmont Workforce Development Board in finding qualified individuals so that employers may fill current and future employment opportunities.

The Board is interested in reviewing programs that fall under the following industries:

  • Business & Financial Services

  • Health Services

  • Information Technology

  • Manufacturing/Distribution

Training providers that are interested in being added to the state eligible training provider list will need to complete the application process. The process and application can be accessed by clicking the links below:

Please note: the WIOA program provides training services to participants, but it is a customer-driven process. The final decision of what program and what provider to attend is up to the WIOA participant. There is no guarantee that an Eligible Training Provider will receive any WIOA participants funded by ITAs.

Eligible Training Providers List

Training providers and programs that are eligible for funding provided by the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) can be found online at the Virginia Workforce Connection. Once on the website, scroll down to “General Resources and Services” and click on “Training Providers.”
