Integration of Trade Services for Dislocated Workers: A Comprehensive Guide





Speak with your assessment specialist about the tools used in your

local workforce development area (workforce area). Ensure that the

assessment tool is appropriate for the LEP customer as well as

other dislocated workers. Some examples of assessment tools are:

• Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE);

• Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System (CASAS);

• Career Occupational Preference System (COPS); and

• other skill assessment tools and interest inventories.




Plan Document

The IEP document consists of entries and documentation in TWIST

or a Board-approved document. This documentation is mandatory

before a training referral can be approved. A hard copy signed by

the customer must be kept in the customer’s files.

Six critical elements you can include in the development of an IEP


1. Job skills, work history, and education

2. Assessment and other test results

3. Specific occupation, selected in consultation with the

participant and meeting the 80 percent wage replacement goal,

which will be reasonably available on completion of training, or

for which the worker is willing to relocate

4. Job skills, requirements, certifications, or licenses that the

worker lacks for employment in the selected job

5. How the training plans meet all of the skills needs of the

occupation (includes acquisition of English proficiency, basic

education, and prerequisites required for the job) within the

available weeks of TRA benefits, unless other income support

is available

6. LMI that includes wage information, including whether the

occupation will meet the 80 percent wage replacement goal
