Target Occupation Profiles (TOPS)

What are TOPs?
Target Occupational Profiles (TOPs) are one page reports that provide information about each of the 40 target occupations for the ITA program.  The Partnership provides this information to case managers and ITA-eligible WIAO customers to help them decide among different occupational training options.  Each TOP contains information about the current and projected number of jobs in each occupation, as well as wages, job duties, educational and skills requirements, job titles, and largest employers.
