Eligible Training Provider List The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires Training Providers to apply to the State Workforce Agency (NC Division of Workforce Solutions), and to be approved by at least one Local Workforce Development Board for eligibility to receive WIOA funds. The publicly accessible Statewide List of Eligible Training Providers includes all training programs that are currently approved by one or more boards. Training Providers must complete initial or continuing eligibility requirements in order to be added to or maintain their status on the list.

As part of the infrastructure to carry out the mandates of the 1998 Workforce Investment Act, states are required to maintain a list of Training Providers and Programs that are certified to receive students using WIOA funds. WIOA students are only permitted to use their Individual Training Account (ITA) funds in programs that appear on the Statewide ETPL.
All of the institutions and programs that comprise the Statewide ETPL have been approved by a Local Workforce Development Board (WDB) in North Carolina. Each of NC's 23 WDBs make eligibility decisions regarding what programs to certify for their area.
Inclusion on the ETPL, in itself, does not guarantee that WIOA funds are available for enrollment in an eligible offering. The availability of WIOA funding for enrollment is based on many factors, including assessment of an Individual's employment needs. Individuals who are interested in determining if they qualify for WIOA training funding must contact an NCWorks Career Center.
