Nevada adds Vegas PBS's online education program to state-approved list

Vegas PBS’s Vegas Virtual online education program is now part of the Nevada state-approved training provider list, the station said today (Nov. 2). The effort was launched in response to unemployment issues in the state. It provides online education programs, from high-school GED's to specific career training; prices vary by course, with most between $100 and $150. The state list was created as part of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998, which provides framework for states to improve delivery of employment services to communities.
