Welcome to the new site of Missouri's Workforce Investment Act (WIA) approved list of Eligible Training Providers. Previously known as the Missouri Education and Career Hotlink (MECH) .

The Training Provider Search tool now available at jobs.mo.gov has been designed to meet the requirements of the Workforce Investment Act (WIA), Section 122, which requires each state to publicize a list of educational institutions that qualify to receive students who are eligible to receive Workforce Investment Act federal funds for their training.

The new site provides an enhanced training provider search experience for your customers (students) and job seekers, including the ability to see at a glance the cost of tuition, location and length of training. Additionally, customers will find an interactive career exploration tool, linked to the provider list. You can expect continued enhancements for both yourself and your customers.
