Help on each of the Quick Search Questions
 Which Education & Training Providers are in my area?
   Which Providers offer the type of Program or Course I am interested in?
   Which Programs or Courses are related to the Occupation I'm interested in?
    This search option allows you to find programs or courses that teach related skills useful to a particular occupation.

The first page of this search is illustrated below:

The selection criteria available on this page are as follows:

  • Enter an occupation keyword - Enter part or all of an occupation's title and click the 'Go' button. If a match is not found, try a more general term, for example, if looking for training on designing Web sites, you may want to first try the keyword "web". If this does not return any programs or courses, try to broaden your search by using the keyword "computer" and see if any of the results could work for you. You may want to enter partial words to find all forms of a word (for example, 'nurs' will find both 'nurse' and 'nursing').
  • Select a School to Career Cluster (occupation category) - Choose an occupation category which most closely relates to your desired occupation.

Upon entering an occupation keyword and clicking 'Go', or selecting an occupation category from the list, a list of occupations which match this criteria will be displayed. A sample results page is illustrated below:

The features of the program list page are as follows:
  • The sentence at the top of the page will indicate how many programs and/or courses were found. Since courses are listed separately at the bottom of the page, click on the the word 'courses' if you want to jump directly to that section.
  • The orange title bars begin the results lists. The list for programs includes the Program Name, Provider Name, Training Location, an icon that denotes WIA approval (to determine if an Individual Training Account (ITA) can be utilized), and an Add to Cart feature which allows you to click and add that program to your Comparison Cart. The list for courses includes the Course Name, Provider Name, Training Location, Award (certification/degree), and an Add to Cart feature which allows you to click and add that course to your Comparison Cart. The solid arrow (solid arrow icon)indicates that the list is currently sorted by that column. A hollow arrow (hollow arrow icon) indicates that by clicking on it the list can be re-sorted by that column.
Click on an underlined program or course name to get more information about that program or course. Click on a provider name to get more details about that provider.
