Workforce Solutions for North Central Texas is continuously developing strategies to bolster in-demand and high-paying occupations that are critical to the local economy. The Target Occupations List, which guides these strategies, is based on economic indicators and validated by training providers and economic developers throughout the region. Additionally, the list directs workforce customers to economically relevant occupational training for careers that offer a high return on investment.

We are currently working to update the Target Occupations List for the new fiscal year. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback on the Proposed 2019-2020 Target Occupations List. The feedback is being compiled and considered. The proposed list will be submitted for approval to the Board on September 24, 2019, and will be published here on October 1, 2019.
