Palmetto Academic and Training Hub (PATh)

The state’s Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) Eligible Training Provider List has been renamed the Palmetto Academic and Training Hub (PATh) and updated to better link individuals to organizations that can provide education and training to enhance their career path. It is easier to use for both the individual as well as training providers with improved navigation, more robust capabilities and metrics.

PATh is a catalog of academic programs, including classroom, correspondence, online and apprenticeship opportunities that support local in-demand occupations. Training providers and their curriculum are added to the list through an application process administered by the S.C. Department of Employment and Workforce (DEW).

Through the new PATh system, training providers will be able to:

  • Better gauge their programs' performance.
  • Renew applications.
  • Upload various kinds of data.
  • And more.

WIOA participants seeking training opportunities can use PATh to:

  • Search the provider list.
  • Search and compare programs.
  • Receive details including tuition costs, fees, program length and locations.

As South Carolina continues to develop a workforce focused on skills sought by regional employers, DEW, the State Workforce Development Board, Local Workforce Development Boards, SC Works and local training providers redesigned this innovative approach to capturing training provider and program information, incorporating future performance data: Palmetto Academic and Training Hub.
