Integration of Trade Services for Dislocated Workers: A Comprehensive Guide

Part D-200 — Intensive Services



At the time WIA Intensive services begin or a waiver of the

training requirement is entered into TWIST, you must enroll

all Trade-certified workers in WIA Dislocated Worker services.

WIA funded

Co-enrollment in both WIA and Trade programs allows the Tradecertified

worker to fully benefit from WIA-funded case

management and supportive services. If a Trade-certified worker is

trained with Trade program funds and placed in employment using

WIA resources, the Dislocated Worker program receives credit for

the successful outcome.

Here are key points to remember.

Trade-certified workers are dislocated workers.

• All dislocated workers receive core services, including Rapid

Response services and initial assessments.

• The overall goal is to provide early intervention services that

lead to rapid reemployment where the participant can expect an

80 percent wage replacement based on the prior employment.

• All dislocated workers covered under a filed petition must

receive Rapid Response services, Employment Service (ES) as

part of core services, and WIA Intensive services, including a

referral to vocational skills or dual-language training when no

suitable employment is available, if appropriate.
