All Northern California: Employment Training Panel (ETP) in Northern California
ETP—Employment Training Program—was founded in 1982 as a California agency to facilitate cooperative business-labor programs. These are designed to improve the state’s economic competitiveness through state-funded employee training assistance. To date, the ETP program has provided over $1.2 billion for upgrading skills through training 760,000 employees working in 77,000 businesses.
ETP funds are used to offset training costs to your employees.
