Approved WIA Programs

Below is a list of existing Oakton curricula which are certified for the use of a WIA individual training account. These programs are part of Oakton's regular catalog. They are not specifically designed for WIA participants. Most of the students who enroll will not be using an individual training account.

Programs that say ALL in the left column are Alliance for Lifelong Learning programs; all others are Oakton credit programs.

The table below lists all the programs that Oakton offers that are eligible for the use of the WIA individual training account.  Here is how to best use this table:

The link in the left column will take you to the degree or certificate page, which outlines the courses needed to achieve the degree or certificate - however it does not list any prerequisites or developmental courses that may be needed.

The link in the middle column will take you to the department that offers the degree or certificate, where you can find course descriptions (which list prerequisites), faculty information and more. Some programs are limited enrollment.

The right column shows the IWDS Workforce ID.  You can look up WIA approved training programs, providers and estimated cost at the Illinois Workforce Development System.

a) Click on "search Illinois’ statewide list of WIA-certified training providers"

b) Enter "Oakton" in the "Training Provider Name:" field to view the list of approved programs; select the specific program to see estimated costs of your chosen program (check both name and Workfoce ID). Costs are for in-district residents and only include courses for the degree or certificate; out-of-district residents will have higher costs. The cost of any pre-requisites or developmental courses is not included.

c) To search for other WIA training providers offering your chosen program, enter the name of the program, e.g. management, graphic design, welding. into the ‘Training Program Name:’  field
