Program Overview

The Employment Training Panel (ETP) is a business and labor supported state agency that assists employers in strengthening their competitive edge by providing funds to off-set the costs of job skills training necessary to maintain high-performance workplaces. The program is performance-based, providing funds for trainees who successfully complete training and are retained in well-paying jobs for a specific period of time. 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.
