If an individual requires additional occupational skills upgrading to obtain employment, funding may be available to attend school at one of our eligible training providers in a career that is in demand. Here is the link to our Training Provider Page/ Occupations-in-Demand. You can view our list of high demand jobs by occupation and find which schools on our approved training provider list offer occupational skills training for them by clicking on the “View Programs” button under the “Training” column.
We operate under a work-first concept, which means when someone seeks assistance through one of our CareerSource Southwest Florida centers, we first determine if that individual has relevant, marketable work skills and is ready to enter or advance in the job market.
Because each jobseeker’s personal and financial situation is unique, we recommend you contact the center nearest you to make an appointment with a Certified Workforce Professional or attend an orientation of services session. At this session you will learn about available training programs and eligibility requirements. The orientation provides information regarding training funds available through the Workforce Investment & Opportunity Act (WIOA) and an overview of the services available within the center.
