FROM : BARBARA ANN FARMER
Administrator
for Regional Management
 
SUBJECT : Training on Changes in the Final JTPA Rule

  1. Background. The final rule for the 1992 Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Amendments was published on September 2, 1994, as a separate Part II of the Federal Register, and the Department arranged for copies to be provided directly to the States. To respond quickly to the JTPA community's need for information on these rule changes, the Employment and Training Administration is providing training sessions through its Regional Offices.

  2. Training Design. Although each Regional Office is arranging for sites and dates separately, sessions will start in some locations before the end of October 1994. Our goal is that all sessions will be concluded by December 1994. This training is intended to reach the Service Delivery Area/Substate Grantee level and is designed to present an overview of information, including time for participant discussion, that will last about one day. These sessions will deal only with the major changes and concomitant issues which may require clarification. Consequently, participants should have a substantial under- standing of the Amendments and of the areas of the interim final rule which were changed.

  3. Training Schedule. The training schedule in each Region is being developed by the Regional Office in consultation with the States to correlate with State needs. At some sites, schedules may include additional days of subject specific training and opportunities to continue the dialogue on ways to improve the job training system.

  4. Action. Please alert your SDAs/SSGs to the availability of this training opportunity.
