The Louisiana Workforce Commission (LWC) has announced new efforts to promote inclusivity among state labor programs. Recently, the Louisiana State Apprenticeship Council issued approval for the registration of a new distinctive apprenticeship piloted by a minority female administrator. The program, sponsored by the Louisiana Healthcare Institute (LHI), will offer training in medical coding, billing and compliance and it is the first federally-registered apprenticeship program of its kind. In recognition of the program’s launch, the LWC has partnered with LHI to host a Women in Apprenticeship community event on Sunday, October 15th, at 6 PM at the Louisiana Healthcare Institute.
