Individual Training Account (ITA) - Funding

What is an Individual Training Account (ITA)?

An Individual Training Account (ITA) is an account set up on behalf of an adult or dislocated worker to pay for training services. The purpose of the ITA is to give program participants maximum choice in selecting a training program.

One-Stop Career Centers determine the dollar amount limits, time limits, and other requirements for use of ITA accounts.
If you are approved for an ITA account, you must choose your training services from the statewide list of ITA-approved programs. A One-Stop Career Center employment counselor will give you information to help you make an informed choice about how to spend your ITA funds.

You can use the Department of Workforce Training's Online Services Training Course Search to find ITA-approved training programs that meet your needs. Select "ITA" from the Approved Course Type drop-down box to find ITA-approved programs.

Student CORI Policy

College programs involving potentially unsupervised contact with children, the disabled, or the elderly, including fieldwork (a clinical affiliation, internship, externship, or field placement) with a private or public healthcare provider or daycare provider, will be required to undergo state-wide and/or national criminal background checks, including but not limited to: Massachusetts Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) and Sex Offender Record Information (SORI), Seven (7) year residential Search, and FBI Fingerprinting checks. The purpose of the background check is to ensure a safe and protective environment for all clients, particularly members of vulnerable populations.

Students choosing not to consent to the required background checks will be ineligible to participate in fieldwork involving vulnerable populations. Ineligibility to participate in fieldwork may affect a student's ability to successfully complete the program.

Based on the results of the background checks, a student may be deemed ineligible to participate in academic or clinical activities, which may impact a student's ability to successfully complete program requirements. Background checks are reviewed by the College’s CORI Board. The CORI Board determines eligibility to participate in academic and/or clinical activities. Students have the right to appeal the determination of the CORI Board by filing a written appeal with the Vice President of Student Affairs within 10 business days of receiving the CORI Board’s determination.

Furthermore, please be advised that eligibility to participate in College academic and/or clinical activities following a background check does not guarantee eligibility to sit for a professional credentialing examination(s) or for employment upon program completion. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the certification or licensure board for a particular healthcare or other service profession to determine the standards that must be met for credentialing, licensing and/or employment in that field.
