Number and percentage of people who successfully complete Workforce Development training

Status

This measure demonstrates the total number of enrollees to those who successfully completed training. Depending on the length of training, which can last anywhere from 12 weeks to 3 years, there may or may not be a completion rate available at the time of reporting, as in this year. We currently do not have a complete analysis of the number of enrollees who completed from 2019 because some enrollees are still in training. 
These trainees are all participating in community based organization workforce training programs in partnership with the Master Community Workforce Plan adopted by Imagine Austin.
