Education & Training

The Workforce Innovation & Opportunity Act (WIOA) helps participants identify pathways to meaningful, sustainable, and competitive careers by exposing them to a variety of education and training opportunities. WIOA eligible participants receive assistance with planning a new career step-by-step from knowledgeable Career Specialists, who are dedicated to assessing work skills, identifying training needs, and assisting with training or supportive services funds.

Georgetown, Horry, and Williamsburg counties have identified numerous occupations which are in high demand for the region. Be sure to meet with your Career Specialist to find out what in demand occupations would be right for you.

Education & Training opportunities may include the following:

On-the-Job Training & Apprenticeship On-the-Job Training:

Allows an eligible customer to learn skills for a specific occupation through demonstration and practice under actual working conditions. This training will occur while the customer is engaged in productive, full-time work as a hired employee. Apprenticeship On-the-Job Training allows you to go a step further by paring classroom training with your job training. Both options allow you to learn while you earn!

Classroom Training:

Allows a certified Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act customer to attend short-term and more long-term classroom training programs.

  • Classroom Training under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) offers:
  • Diploma Programs (Typically one year)
  • Continuing Education/Certificate Programs (Typically one month to one year)
  • Associate Degree Programs (Typically two years)
