Career Center. Through any of the One-Stop Career Centers across Arizona, Core Self-Services will be universally accessible to anyone. Whether an individual is already part of the workforce or new to the workforce, the One-Stop Centers provide a full range of services. These include: information, employment, training and education services for all job seekers. Staff-Assisted Core, Intensive and Training Services are available to those persons eligible to receive WIA Title I services.
Training Demand. Individuals who seek training to obtain employment or upgrade their marketable skills are given access to information about all training providers and training programs that have been given approval by one or more of the Local Workforce Investment Boards. The Santa Cruz County Investment Board is managed by Director Patricia Wallace. For information contact: Santa Cruz County, 610 N. Morley Ave., Nogales, AZ 85621, Phone: (520) 375-7670, Fax: (520) 281-1166.
Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL). The Eligible Training Provider List (I need a list of Santa Cruz County providers) has been developed so identified eligible individuals may be involved in WIA-funded training activities. Use of the ETPL will provide an opportunity for acquisition of necessary tools to allow eligible individuals, as well as the general public, to make informed choices about training preferences that will drive their future career decisions. Key to the delivery of training services is the Consumer Report Card, an annual compilation of performance data that presents the viewer with specific information about the success of each training program.
Eligible Providers. The types of training providers eligible for this list include, but are not exclusive to, Postsecondary Educational Institutions, Vocational Education Institutions, and Community-based Organizations who provide occupational training and Apprenticeship Programs (no listing on the state ADE website) through an application and approval process.
