26 NYS Local Workforce Investment Areas (LWIA's) have launched the Metrix Learning eTraining program.


After a 90 day period of program planning, training and consulting, the 26 participating NYS LWIA's launched Metrix Learning, a Web-based skills assessment and eTraining system. Approximately 400 One Stop Center personnel were trained to deliver the assessment solution to their customers. Prospective customers include unemployed and under employed adults and out of school youth. Employment service customers enrolled in the program have 90 days to update their employment skills by going through an assessment to determine skill gaps and then have a learning plan developed which they follow, supported by access to over 5000 electronic learning courses.
