Employment Training Panel Program (ETP) is a program to fund training for companies in the State of California.
Individuals who want to use ETP Funds for their personal development are not allowed to use those funds with Learn iT!.
What is ETP (Overview)
The Employment Training Panel (ETP) grants funding to employers in order to help them upgrade their workers’ skill level through training. This in turn leads to higher productivity and good paying, long-term jobs
ETP is a State of California program that was established in 1983
It is funded by your company’s tax dollars. A portion of UI tax is set aside for ETP general fund
ETP allocates funding to companies who go through a proposal process leading to a contract
ETP funding is performance based. Funding is earned by your company on a trainee by trainee basis, after documentation of training using simple sign in sheets known as rosters, and after trainees meet basic ETP guidelines.
This website will provide you with information about the ETP, and Learn iT!'s partner organization & services.
