ACT for Healthcare

The Wisconsin Strategy

Madison College is participating with the other fifteen Wisconsin technical colleges in a $14.9 million U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant. Grant resources are providing opportunities for colleges to expand and enhance their own programs to close the skills gap in healthcare-related occupations. The goal is to help individuals obtain the skills needed to earn a high-wage job in a high demand industry.

Madison College's Efforts

Madison College will develop robust career and education pathways designed to support veterans and underemployed, unemployed and dislocated workers in successfully entering high-demand health careers. Madison College will provide core academic support to students in key early degree credit science, math and communications courses through the development of bridges and additional support structures. The knowledge and skills learned in these training programs give students a foundation for pursuing careers and/or further education in the healthcare industry.

Eligibility Requirements

To receive services, an individual must be 18 years or older and be a U.S. citizen or eligible to work in the U.S.

Priority Participant

Participants may include veterans, underemployed/unemployed or TAA dislocated workers.

This ACT program is 100% funded with a TAACCCT Round IV $19.9 million grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.

This program is an equal opportunity program. Auxiliary aids and services are available upon request to individuals with disabilities. Assistive technologies are available upon request and include voice/TTY (711 or 800-947-6644).
