Questions? WIOA.49 Objectives and Service Definitions The WIOA.49 is a tool for case managers to use when determining the appropriate objective and service that to open in Mworks and the action needed for opening and closing the service(s) on the Mworks Employment Plan. The WIOA.49 helps case managers: Determine what services initiate participation and extend exit; Identify an Objective and determine what service(s) are available under that objective; Determine the appropriate service(s) to provide based on the service definition; and
Provides instruction on opening and closing services. WIOA.49 Continued The WIOA.49 Objectives and Services Definition document has been revised and will be posted on the WIOA website under Forms the week of September 9th. Revisions: Services that initiate and extend participation are incorporated into a single column; Removed the column with the service that does NOT initiate participation to extend exit; Removed the Outcome column; and Added $$$ to the services that have money attached
in the service definition. Questions? Measurable Skills Gains (MSGs) Reminder that CPR and First Aid certificates are not considered Measurable Skills Gain. The training people get for these does not lead to an industry recognized credential. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) 10 Hour Course that provides awareness of job-related common safety and health hazards. This also does not count as a Measurable Skills
Gain because it is not considered a recognized credential for WIOA. Measurable Skills Gains (Continued) Youth Grades Great Measurable Skills Gain to record is a semester of grades for any Youth going to Secondary Education. Seeing more of these being recorded THANK YOU One of the low-hanging fruit of the MSGs HiSET This only needs to be recorded as a Credential on the Follow-Up screen in MWORKS. The MSG will be
calculated from there. There is not a place in MWORKS to put a HiSET as a MSG. Questions? Gap in Service USDOL guidance: Under WIOA the only allowable gap in service is to accommodate a delay in training. A gap in services will generally be for 90 days; If an additional gap is needed to resolve any issues the client may have in completing training in order to obtain employment the gap may be extended to a total of 180 days, but will never be longer than 180 days.
Document the dates and the reason for the gap in services in a case note. Open the appropriate service in Mworks. Clients currently in a temporary gap in service for health/medical or temporary move from the area may continue in this service but no extensions will be approved. Questions?
