Grand Valley State University offers a variety of (non-degree) certificate programs that are approved for No Worker Left Behind funding. You must check with your MI Works! case worker to determine if the program you are interested in is suitable for the career training you are seeking.
Step 1: Determine if your program is eligible. Go to www.mycareereducation.org and click on the "Training Search" link. Then select "Search by School" to find Grand Valley State University-Continuing Education.
- Detailed information about each eligible program can be found at
www.gvsu.edu/learn/gatlin, including costs, hours, content, prerequisites, materials and computer requirements.
- Provide the course information to your Michigan Works case worker. Typically, the information needed is available on the www.gvsu.edu/learn/gatlin site. The course can start at any time and completion date is six months from the start date.
Step 2: Have your Mi Works! case worker complete an Individualized Training Account (ITA) voucher that indicates the course and amount of funding that was approved. Make sure that they have an accurate address, phone number and e-mail address for you so that you can be enrolled online. The form can be faxed to 616-331-7365 or mailed to:
