New for 2019- Idaho has expanded its Advanced Opportunities funding to allow students to use $500 per course ($1,000 per year) of Advanced Opportunities funding towards workforce development classes that will be published on an approved list by the state ("Hot jobs"- jobs in demand). For the Caldwell region, CWI offers the following classes as part of the new rules: Electrical Apprenticeship, Plumbing Apprenticeship, HVAC Apprenticeship, and Phlebotomy. See Statute HERE Other programs not listed as part of the new statute can still utilize Advanced Opportunities funding as overload classes ($225 per class).
