Do I need any special facilities to accommodate MOC-1?

No. MOC-1 is completely self-contained except for public restroom facilities. All that is necessary is public restroom facilities, and an area with ample parking space and safe, easy accessibility.

However, in order to save charges due to gasoline consumption, an outside-access 50-amp

240/120-volt (3-pole-4-wire) outlet would eliminate the use of the internal generators. (30-amp in warmer months*no heat/AC*)

Scheduling of the Mobile Career Center (MOC-1) will be based on three factors:
(1) Priority of Events
(2) Dates of Requests
(3) Need and Availability of Trainer(s)

At the discretion of Michigan Works! Southeast, the following list events are listed in order of priority:

National/State disasters or emergencies Rapid Response events Core WIOA services Tutorial and skills training Employer requests Trade shows, job fairs and expositions

In the event 2 or more requests of an identical priority are made on the same day, MWSE shall determine which scheduling will receive priority, based upon intended use and other relevant factors. Scheduling may be requested for a minimum of one day or a maximum of 2 weeks. If subsequent requests are not pending following a 2 week engagement, additional concurrent scheduling beyond the initial 2-week period may be approved without incurring additional travel costs. MOC-1 scheduling requests must be submitted a minimum of 3 weeks in advance of scheduled event. Disasters and emergencies will not require advance scheduling notice and may modify existing scheduling. MWSE will respond to scheduling requests within 3 days following the receipt of the request. Any modifications to a scheduled event must be reported to the Mobile Career Center driver/manager within 48 hours of the scheduled event or daily rate charges may apply.
