A goal of the West Piedmont Workforce Development Board (WPWDB) is to ensure that the region has a quality workforce prepared to meet the demands of the future. We attempt to accomplish this goal by providing employment and training programs authorized by the federal Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act to the citizens.
The training programs on this list must meet the application procedures and standards of the WPWDB and are then approved by the Commonwealth of Virginia. Training providers are required to meet annual performance levels to remain on this list. The performance levels are designed to ensure that all training programs meet an acceptable level of quality.

Training Provider's Certification and Recertification
All training providers are required to complete an application and submit information for each program they wish to be considered. Complete applications will be reviewed by WPWDB staff and the Program Planning and Development Committee. The Program Planning and Development Committee will make a recommendation to the full Board.
Training provider applications may be reviewed throughout the program year, but must go through the recertification process on the WPWDB's Program Year schedule which begins July 1 of each year.
