Attention Job Seekers and WIOA Members – Want Training for a Career That Can Transform Your Life?

Healing Hands School of  Holistic Health, (Healing Hands) has a great reputation for preparing Graduates for success as Professional Massage Therapists. The profession offers flexible schedules, opportunity for self-employment, and job security.  In fact, our school receives more job opportunity listings quarterly, than we have graduates to fill them! Accordingly, our Admission team works closely with prospective students to make their education in Massage Therapy a reality. Depending on their financial circumstances, we may encourage them to apply for educational funding.  If they are underemployed, or unemployed, we suggest they apply for Grants. One such Grant we suggest is made available through the Workforce Investment and Opportunity Act (WIOA). Students may be eligible to receive a non-repayable Scholarship of up to $12,000 and/or transportation supportive services up to $100/week!

What is the WIOA ?

WIOA combines the resources of many workforce agencies to provide funding to job seekers.  The WIOA team helps connect participations to personalized no-cost employment services.  They help job seekers identify strengths and interests. They’ll assist with creating a personalized employment plan to reach individual goals. They provide job fairs, workshops, career opportunities, and access to employment training and services needed to succeed.

What is the EDD?

Just as importantly, the Education Development Department (EDD) is a WIOA partner that approves individuals for Grants.  They also manage the Eligible Training Providers List (ETPL) and ensure providers’ compliance. We’re proud to let prospective students know that Healing Hands has met the criteria for approval as an ‘Eligible Training Provider’.  Accordingly, you will find us on the ETPL with the Program name: 600-Hour Massage Therapist Program.

Where do I apply for the WIOA Grant?

The network of WIOA ‘Job Centers’ are called One Stop Centers or America’s Job Center of California (AJCC).  Therefore, if you’d like to attend Healing Hands but need funding, contact America’s Job Center of California – Irvine.  They are located at 17891 Cartwright Road, Irvine, California.  Phone: 949-341-8000, hours of operation are 8am – 7pm Mondays and 8am-5pm Tuesdays through Fridays.
