Previous users of the Arkansas Consumer Report System (ACRS) will notice the new look of the web site. Although it may look different, the functionality of the previous system has been retained. New features have been added that make the site more user-friendly.
From the Main Page users can access the following links:
Clicking on "Providers” presents the user with several choices. The options chosen determine the presentation of the list the user views. First, choose “All Providers” or “Eligible Providers”. If “All Providers” is chosen, all providers will be listed. If “Eligible Providers” is chosen, only those providers that are WIOA-Certified will be listed. Optionally, to narrow the search, a user may enter a Keyword; choose a Provider Type and/or a Local Workforce Development Area. A user may select “All LWDA” and providers for the entire State will be displayed, or one or more LWDAs may be selected to view providers for that area only. Once the Providers results are displayed, a user may click on the “Provider Listing” tab to obtain an alphabetical list of Providers.
Clicking on “Programs” presents the user with several choices. The options chosen determine the presentation of the list the user views. First, choose “All Providers” or “Eligible Providers”. If “All Providers” is chosen, all programs will be listed. If “Eligible Providers” is chosen, only those programs that are WIOA-Certified will be listed. Optionally, to narrow the search, a user may enter a Keyword; choose a Field of Study, Training Level, Local Workforce Development Area, Maximum Cost, and/or Financial Aid available. A user may select “All LWDA” and programs for the entire State will be displayed, or one or more LWDAs may be selected to view programs for that area only. Once the Programs results are displayed, a user may click on the “Program Listing” tab to obtain an alphabetical list of Programs.
WIOA Eligible Youth Providers
Clicking on “WIOA Eligible Youth Providers” will allow the user to select a Local Workforce Development Area and view its approved list of youth service providers.
Projected Employment Opportunities List
Clicking on the "Projected Employment Opportunities List" will allow the user to determine the programs of study that can lead to employment in occupations that are in demand. Courses listed on the statewide list should provide opportunities for employment anywhere within the State, while those listed for a particular Local Workforce Development Area only apply to that particular area. This guide serves to fulfill two needs: first, it is useful to potential students seeking training, and secondly, it provides information to educational providers who wish to make application to become a WIOA Eligible Training Provider. One of the criteria for a program of study to be declared WIOA-certified is that it provides training for an occupation considered to be in demand either statewide or in a LWDA.
