Workforce Investment

"I enjoyed being able to go online at my convenience to do my studies. I could take my son back and forth to school and log on while he is in school. I could log also log in after he was in bed at night. The course was easy to follow and learn from. The activities were fun and interesting learning tools."

 —J.E.H., WIA Graduate
