The Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (WIA) was designed to get Americans trained and on the job. It’s one of many legislative efforts to give practical help to specific types of workers. ATS Heavy Equipment Operator Training School has gone through the process to be considered a WIA Eligible Training Provider (twenty-two states recognize us) and we work with a number of agencies who provide help to job seekers.
Agencies ATS has worked with and will continue to work with include:
- Government employment offices
- Departments of workforce development
- Workforce Investment Act (WIA)
- Dislocated worker retraining programs
- Trade Readjustment Act (TAA)
- Vocational rehabilitation
- Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA)
- State Departments of Veterans Affairs
- Federal Veterans Administration
- Other agencies that help people find employment
We are licensed in seven states as a private vocational school and are an approved training program for veterans, too. If you are working with an agency to get a new start in a career, or seeking a training program for a client, Associated Training Services is a good place to start. We have built up our solid reputation as a training school for professionals over decades of service.
Labor market information can be given to agency counselors: employment outlooks for specific industries, wages and earning potential, job descriptions, working conditions, and whatever else may be needed for you to be able to get the funding you need for the training that will put you in the driver’s seat of a career as a heavy equipment operator.
If you are not sure which programs you qualify for, our Financial Assistance department can help you figure out the possibilities. We have the experience to guide you through the paperwork and on the way to a job.
