(B) Link to employment opportunities
The vocational training provided shall be linked to the employment opportunities in the local area in which the enrollee intends to seek employment after graduation.
(b) Education and vocational training
The Secretary may arrange for education and vocational training of enrollees through local public or private educational agencies, vocational educational institutions, or technical institutes, whenever such entities provide education and training substantially equivalent in cost and quality to that which the Secretary could provide through other means.

(2) Benefits
