One of the Texas Workforce Commission's (TWC) programs is the Labor Market and Career Information (LMCI) program. LMCI collects and provides information about education programs, training opportunities, planning for careers and how careers are developed. This lets Boards know what is happening in their local job market. That way the Boards can offer the right services to businesses and people looking for jobs.
Under WIOA, TWC must certify every Workforce Solutions office every three years. This year, all offices must be approved by December 31, 2023. Offices renew their approval by completing the One-Stop Certification form provided below. Email forms to firstname.lastname@example.org.
