New bills have been introduced in the 2017-18 legislative session with a potential to have a direct impact on ETP.
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.
UPDATE: The Employment Training Management System (ETMS) was open for customer use on November 1, 2016. Newly applying Single Employers can start their application process in this new web-based system. Please continue to visit this page for updates.
