LMI Training Gateway: Learn about LMI and How to Translate Data into Decision-Making
ETA has collected on this page numerous resources for helping you learn about LMI, what data sources are available and how to use various types of intelligence and workforce information in service delivery as well as decision-making activities in workforce development.
This is your Gateway to LMI Training Resources!
The E-Learning Series on the Fundamentals of LMI
The Employment and Training Administration (ETA) developed this basic LMI training series as an online opportunity for those wishing to learn more about LMI in a self-paced environment.
The E-Learning Series contains the following modules:
- Introduction to LMI (45 minutes)
- LMI for the Job Seeker (30 minutes)
- LMI for Assessing Skills (35 minutes)
- LMI for Re-Employment (40 minutes)
- LMI for Business (35 minutes)
ETA asked three volunteer state LMI entities (Mississippi, Missouri, and Ohio) to field test, refine, improve and replicate webinar-based LMI training products .
The result is a benchmarked version of the training, which states may customize for their own use, but which also is included here under the Online Training tab in WorkforceGPS for your easy access to learn more about LMI.
These LMI e-learning training modules are now offered to customers to:
- Use in the statewide and regional labor market context, incorporating the use of state information tools and LMI products, where appropriate
- Guide one-stop delivery staff in selections for workforce activities and services, and decision-makers in policy-setting
- Help develop strategic, operational and service delivery plans designed to achieve labor market outcomes for customers, and
- Refine their labor market analysis and methods using the E-Learning modules.
Quick Lesson LMI Podcasts and Using LMI in Service Delivery
In addition to the E-Learning Series on LMI Fundamentals, quick lesson podcasts and a training webinar on applying LMI in employment and training program decision-making are two more training platforms that round out the basic LMI training components developed by ETA.
Workforce professionals, workforce board planners, program staff, center contractors, and workforce board members will find these trainings useful for workforce activity planning and program design purposes.
