Public Notice – Adding Occupations to Regional Targeted Occupations List

 

Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board, Inc. is soliciting input for the Regional Targeted Occupations List (TOL) for Region 24 (Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry and Lee counties) for the July 2015 – June 2016 program year.  The TOL will be used to determine which occupations are eligible for training reimbursement with Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) and other workforce funds.  Training reimbursements are issued by Southwest Florida Workforce Development Board through our CareerSource Southwest Florida centers to authorized training providers for post-secondary occupational training, associate degree education and bachelor degree education which link to the TOL.

The current process allows for the addition of occupations on at least a quarterly basis.   The next two deadlines for submission are August 12, 2015 and October 21, 2015.  Detailed information for requesting the addition of an occupation is available at www.careersourcesouthwestflorida.com under “Public Notice” at the bottom of the page.  Or contact Mary Anne Zurn at mzurn@sfwdb.org or (239) 225-2500, ext. 5229.
