Mitchell College Now Eligible Training Provider in CT

Mitchell Hub Now Offering No-Cost Training for WIOA-Eligible Learners

Mitchell College is proud to support local, regional, and state communities by providing high-quality online training through the Mitchell Hub for Digital Innovation & Educational Excellence (“The Mitchell Hub”). As an Eligible Training Provider in Connecticut, Mitchell makes it possible for eligible learners to obtain certifications in technology, business operations, and health and wellness and have the full cost of training covered by WIOA (Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act) funding.

Applicants may be eligible for WIOA funding if they are unemployed, low-income, a dislocated worker (lost employment due to company closure, layoff, or military spouse relocation), out-of-school school youth (age 18–24), veteran, or justice impacted. To determine eligibility for WIOA support, interested learners should contact their local American Job Center through cthires.gov to learn more.

Hub learners join a community of learners taking short courses on specific topics in high-demand careers. Committed to learner success, Mitchell College provides a success and support center to help individuals navigate online learning technology, develop strategies for successful online learning, and connect with other learners, industry mentors, and regional workforce organizations.

About WIOA Funding

In Connecticut, WIOA is managed through five Workforce Development Boards that provide access to training, job-seeking support, and career counseling to eligible individuals. Eligible courses are available in all regions of the state.

Workforce Development Boards include:

  • Eastern Region: Eastern CT Workforce Investment Board
  • South Central Region: Workforce Alliance
  • North Center Region: Capital Workforce Partners
  • Southwest Region: The Workplace, Inc.
  • Northwest Region: Northwest Regional Workforce Investment Board, Inc.

About the Mitchell Hub

The Mitchell Hub was launched in January 2023 with support from U.S. Rep. Joe Courtney, the U.S. Department of Education, the State of Connecticut, and the New England Board of Higher Education. In addition to WIOA-eligible courses, the Mitchell Hub offers a variety of online professional learning and upskilling courses to support career growth, including both certification and professional skill courses. Learners may enroll as individuals, and companies may integrate courses as part of employee onboarding or as an employee upskilling benefit.
