General Information:
Browse the list of hundreds of eligible training providers HERE​.  

All education and training organizations listed are approved to receive Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds to train adults and dislocated workers. The list is updated regularly. 

The provider list gives information about the length and cost of offered programs and how well the providers have done. You can search by type of program, county where the program is located or name of provider.

More information about training providers​
Listed are programs or courses that have received initial certification or have been recertified as required by federal law. Initial certification and inclusion on these lists are based on data submitted to local workforce investment boards by the training providers applying for certification. Review the list prior to enrolling in a program or course to ensure that the training provider is certified to enroll people with a WIOA individual training account.

Training providers who offer programs or courses under the same program type are listed in alphabetical order. The order of listing does not reflect a preference by any government agency. Anyone with an individual training account is advised to review the data on each program or course in consultation with his or her local case manager.

If a training provider has voluntarily given additional contact information, then linkages to their external websites may be available to provide customer information when selecting a training provider/program.
 
General inquiries regarding information reported on the Eligible Training Provider List should be directed to the staff of your local workforce development area (LWDA). Information provided by LWDAs and training providers is included, but the Kentucky Career Center cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information. Let your LWDA know if you discover any inaccuracies in the information in the list. For specific information or inquiry regarding WIOA-eligible training providers, contact your local Kentucky Career Center.​

Performance standards
WIOA requires certain training providers to submit performance information when applying for inclusion on the Eligible Training Provider List. The performance information is self-reported by the providers.

To remain on the statewide list, training providers are required to meet certain annual performance goals. The information used for the renewal process is collected and reviewed by the local workforce investment area and the Division of Workforce and Employment Services to assist you in making informed choices when selecting a training provider.​

Program cost
The cost information displayed on this list represents only the total dollar amount (per student) for in-district/in-state tuition and the required books and fees for the program or course. Additional costs may apply, including expenses for out-of-district or out-of-state tuition, non-required fees, books, equipment, materials and supplies, tools, uniforms or living expenses.

In addition, a student’s total cost of training may be affected by the program length, enrollment status (part-time versus full-time), residence status (in-district/in-state versus out-of-district/out-of-state), housing arrangements or the availability of additional financial assistance.
