The Employment Training Panel (ETP) provides funding to employers to assist in upgrading the skills of their workers through training that leads to good paying, long-term jobs. The ETP was created in 1982 by the California State Legislature and is funded by California employers through a special payroll tax. The ETP is a funding agency, not a training agency. Businesses determine their own training needs and how to provide training. ETP staff is available to assist in applying for funds and other aspects of participation.
Made possible with funding from drought-aid legislation signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown, the California Drought Relief Employment Training Program provides training to both workers and employers
Several proposed bills have a potential impact on, or may be of special interest to the ETP program. For information on these bills.
