WIA Primer - Individual Training Account (ITA)
An ITA is the primary way for participants (classified as
adults) using Title I funds to obtain occupational training.
An ITA is essentially a voucher given to participants who
need occupational skills training to become gainfully
employed or reemployed.
The participant utilizes the voucher to reserve a slot in an
eligible provider’s training class.
Georgia currently utilizes the service of the GCIC to provide a
list of eligible providers.
