The majority of U.S. job positions now require education beyond high school – you need critical thinking, information management, communication skills, and technical know-how. The Department of Workforce Development has created a program online, through WorkOne, to equip Hoosiers with the necessary skills needed to compete.

The online courses allow participants to improve their job knowledge and expertise and can lead to a National Career Readiness Certificate, a credentialed document.
 Interested individuals will first need to prepare a job profile that determines the skill level needed for specific jobs. Once a career area of focus is established, the software will provide instruction on an array of topics.

This initiative will keep Indiana’s workforce highly skilled and ready to compete for jobs.

 Prospective applicants can register online at: http://ingov.wincshost.com/ , or at a local WorkOne.

A full list of WorkOne locations can be found online at: www.in.gov/dwd/WorkOne/.

Participants can take courses from any computer with Internet access once enrolled. Computer access is available at every WorkOne.
