Job Training Programs
LMU Extension offers more than 130 job training certificate programs.
Our programs are tailored for adult learners seeking a career change, professionals advancement, or just acquiring new skills. All are welcome to register.
Our certificate programs are approved by the The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA), a federally funded job training program for job seekers, dislocated workers, youth, foster care participants, incumbent workers, new entrants to the workforce, veterans, persons with disabilities, and employers. Before enrolling, see if you qualify.
For questions regarding WIOA or Voucher enrollments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federally funded training and job program that creates a new approach, providing workforce investment activities through statewide and local systems. Authorized workforce investment activities provided at the local level benefit job seekers, dislocated workers, youth, foster care participants, incumbent workers, new entrants to the workforce, veterans, persons with disabilities, and employers.
These activities promote an increase in employment, job retention, earnings, and occupational skill attainment by participants. This outcome improves the quality of the workforce, reduces welfare dependency, and enhances the productivity and competitiveness of the nation.
Who Qualifies for WIOA funding?
Many people can qualify for WIOA grants. Workforce funding is generally budgeted into Adult, Dislocated Worker, Older Youth, and Younger Youth categories. The majority of funding is budgeted toward adult and dislocated workers whose current job skills are out of date or will be soon. Clients seek training to update current skills or learn skills for a new career if his or her current occupation is not in demand.
What is the approval process for WIOA Participants?
Prospective WIOA participants must visit a WorkSource center to find out if they are eligible to receive WIOA grant funding. Prospective students who are good candidates for the program will meet with a WIOA Counselor who will help guide them through the WIOA process. Typically, participants are required to complete a series of workshops and assessment tests.
Qualifying participants will research approved training providers and programs to determine which is the best fit for their needs. Once students have chosen a school and training program, the school may have to submit a training proposal to the WIOA counselor.

What is a WorkSource center?
A WorkSource center is an office that provides employment-related services to individuals, including job listings, career advising, and training referrals. WIOA counselors (also called case managers, case advisors, and/or career counselors/specialists) meet with potential clients at the WorkSource centers. Together, the potential client and counselor go through the process to determine whether that individual meets the qualifications to receive a training grant. Individuals that qualify to receive a WIOA training grant then research schools and programs in their chosen career field. Though the final decision on which school the client attends is always up to the client, counselors can recommend schools for the client to research as well as provide the clients with brochures or fliers from approved training providers.
