Supported by assessment and informed decision-making, customers may use their ITAs to purchase training slots in life science or health care programs on the eligible training provider list. Customers approved for ITA funds can only select from programs on the approved provider list.

An ITA will be provided after consultation with a MassHire Career Counselor which will include an assessment of customer needs, demand occupations, and selection of a training program. This process will be recorded in a career plan called an Individual Employment Plan (IEP).
