staff member


Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) is a federally funded program intended to support individuals who are seeking to improve their earning potential and career options by increasing skill levels, educational levels, and/or obtaining industry-relevant certification or licensure. WIOA training eligibility is set by the State of California and the local Workforce Development Board (WDB). Eligible students receive individual orientation and needs assessment, specialized academic counseling, and funds for training expenses, including enrollment fees, required textbooks, school supplies, uniforms and other required tools and materials. They may also receive reimbursement for transportation expenses. SRSN is the liaison between the WDB and Cabrillo College. Services are available to those who meet the income criteria, full-time in-county students and students who are receiving unemployment benefits seeking career training. Cabrillo students can apply for this program at the County Career Center in Watsonville. Enrollment opens and closes throughout the fiscal year. Training funds vary, dependent on CTE program.
