Campus and Online Programs Now WIA-Eligible

Are you facing unemployment or job loss and want to go back to school? If you have recently been laid off or unemployed, you may qualify for WIA tuition assistance to pursue career training at no cost to you. As a member of the South Bay Workforce Investment Board, ICDC College is a WIA-approved eligible training provider for fast-track career-training programs offered on campus and now online!

At ICDC College you can use your WIA benefits to further your education at any one of our four Southern California campus locations: Hollywood, Huntington Park, Van Nuys or South Bay. Classes are available day or night, depending on the program.

For those students who prefer to take classes online, ICDC College’s tuition includes all books, coursework and a NetBook computer. Just log in and learn!

ICDC College offers you the benefit of pursuing fast-track career choices in careers on campus, such as: Addiction Treatment Counseling, Homeland Security & Investigation, Medical Office Specialist, Massage Therapy, Pharmacy Technician, Dental Laboratory Specialist and more (not all programs available at all campuses). For those students who desire the flexibility of taking classes online, programs in Addiction Treatment Counseling Homeland Security & Investigation, Computerized Office Specialist and many more are available.

And that’s not all. At ICDC College, job placement assistance is also available, and all students are enrolled in a job preparation course which covers topics such as résumé writing, dress for success, interviewing techniques and more.

“Access to Distance Education for career training is significant,” ICDC College’s Regional Director David Hall states, “it provides eligible WIA participants an alternative method of learning, not previously available to them. The ability to take classes 24/7 from home or at a corner café appeals to a greater scope of students who struggle to balance family responsibilities against career training – historically required to attend a classroom environment.”

To find out if you are eligible for WIA benefits, please speak to a case manager at your local unemployment office, Employment Development Department (EDD) or One-Stop Career Center location.
