The program is performance-based, providing funds for trainees who successfully complete training and are retained in well-paying jobs for a specific period oftime. The program is funded by the Employment Training Tax paid by California employers, and targets firms threatened by out-of-state and international competition. Employers match training funds awarded by ETP for training existing workers.
