D-300.9:

Training

Criteria

(continued)

For example, it would not be an appropriate assessment of

reasonable cost to compare the costs of an English as a Second

Language (ESL) program versus a dual-language training program.

It would be appropriate to compare the cost of a dual-language

program to the total cost of a program comprising stand-alone ESL

followed by stand-alone vocational training, but only if the two

programs were similar in quality and in time required to complete.

Workforce Center staff is responsible for assisting participants in

selecting approvable training. Approvable training is training that

meets the criteria in Part D-200.4, and is provided by a training

provider certified under the Eligible Training Provider

Certification System (ETPS). Also, the worker’s assessment must

indicate that the participant can successfully complete the training.

Approving and referring a participant to training is a local decision.

If a participant insists on applying for training that Workforce

Center staff determines does not meet the approval criteria, and

Workforce Center staff is unable to refocus the participant on

approvable training, Workforce Center staff must recommend that

TWC’s Trade Unit deny the training request.

The assessment of the participant is critical to both the approval

process and the recommendation of a denial of training.

Workforce Center staff must track the Trade eligibility criteria and

document the assessment information in the TWIST record.
