We are nearing the launch of the ETMS that will be used by employers applying for new ETP training contracts. As part of our implementation, ETP will be providing a series of on-line training sessions to help employers become familiar with the new system.
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.
ETP has funded training for Veterans for the past six years, and is proud to recognize the companies that have stepped forward with a Veterans training component. The Panel approved funding under the ETP Veterans Program for the following companies in August 2016:
Several proposed bills have a potential impact on, or may be of special interest to the ETP program. For information on these bills.
The State of California’s Employment Training Panel awarded 43 contracts worth $7,980,857 million to train 7,334 workers. Seven of the proposals approved today include more than $2.9 million for the Panel’s Apprenticeship Apprenticeship Proposals Approved to Train Workers in Green SkillsTraining Program that will help to train 1,595 apprentices. Many of the apprenticeship proposals funded today include green skills training components to address energy efficiency and renewable energy regulatory changes, and to provide clear, high-wage career pathways for many Californians.
