Resumen/cita: Consolidates legislation regarding vocational training and rehabilitation. Title I establishes workforce investment systems. These include State workforce investment boards and local workforce investment boards which shall be responsible for formulating training policy at the state and local level. The States shall designate so-called "local service delivery areas", where "one-stop delivery systems" shall provide a multitude of unemployment and training services, including core services (outreach, initial assessment of skills), intensive services (diagnostic testing, identification of employment barriers), and training. Post-secondary educational institutions, employment service agencies, private and non-profit organizations may act as one-stop delivery systems. Other training programmes established by the Act include Native American programmes, migrant and seasonal farmworker programmes, and veterans' programmes. Sections 141-161 establish the Job Corps, which shall provide training and work experience to persons between the ages of 16 and 21. Access to training services shall be granted through the use of Individual Training Vouchers, which may be used by beneficiaries to choose services suited to their needs. States shall have flexibility in determining how the vouchers will be distributed. Sections 331-339 create a Twenty-First Century Workforce Commission which shall study matters related to information technology workers.
