The Colorado LMI 101 Online Training Series

The Colorado LMI 101 Online e-Learning Training Series In 2006, LMI 101 was developed as a PowerPoint presentation for workforce center professionals, educators, business organizations and other partner agencies. This training was delivered face-to-face in training facilities and conference rooms across the state. By 2009, this training was redesigned for delivery as an e-learning series. The Abode Connect Presenter platform was already available in Colorado so that platform was used for the e-learning series. Colorado LMI 101 Online is divided into two Parts. Part I consists of six modules, each of which is ten minutes or less in duration. Part I is a prerequisite for Part II. The six Part I modules are: ? Module 1: Getting Started ? Module 2: Customers and Data Classifications ? Module 3: Industry Information and Unemployment Data ? Module 4: Occupational Statistics and Projections ? Module 5: Local Employment Dynamics ? Module 6: LMI Products Part II of LMI 101 Online consists of an activity that functions more like a game. It requires learners to answer a variety of questions similar to those asked by customers in One-Stop Centers. Upon completion of Parts I & II, the learner will be able to access a variety of data to address basic customer and agency needs for labor market information and have a functional understanding of our web site. We anticipate that this training will create an improved awareness of LMI data and its uses. Initial feedback from learners has been very positive. In addition, new courses will be developed as specific needs for training are identified. Dee Funkhouser Questions and comments on this e-learning experience are welcome. Please contact Dee.Funkhouser@state.co.us.

TA to States to Meet Economic and Workforce Information Analysis Requirements for State Planning

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration (ETA) has published several key resources to enable states to meet the ETA’s economic and workforce information analysis requirements for integrated and unified state planning. These include an introductory Webcast plus two essential technical assistance documents. Webinar topics covered include what constitutes a good analysis, models for good analyses, where to obtain the necessary labor market and workforce information, and who to go to for help. We provide the PowerPoint presentation as well as the recorded Webcast of about 15 minutes duration. The Webcast refers to several key resources, two of which are included here. One is a two-page summary reference that supplies links to the most relevant resources prepared by ETA staff. The second is much more detailed, and supplies resources that align with each criteria of the DOL integrated plan’s economic and workforce information analysis requirements. All these resources are available at https://www.workforce3one.org/view/3001209733092501910/info
