What are Demand Occupations?


Occupations for which a demand is projected based on annual average job openings, average starting wages, education and training levels, and state or national initiatives. Local Workforce Innovation Areas will be able to petition the state to request that additional occupations be considered as a Demand Occupation. Only those occupations considered "in demand" will be included in the Demand Occupation Training List.
