Eligible Training Provider List

The purpose of the California Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) is to provide customer-focused employment training for adults and dislocated workers.

Program Overview

California’s Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) was established in compliance with the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) of 1998 to provide customer-focused employment training for adults and dislocated workers. Training providers who are eligible to receive Individual Training Accounts (ITAs) through WIA Title I-B funds are listed on the ETPL. The WIA ETPL Policy and Procedures issued in April 2014, governs the operation of the ETPL in California.

California’s statewide list of qualified training providers offers a wide range of educational programs, including classroom, correspondence, online and apprenticeship programs.
