Employment Training Panel (ETP)

Started in 1983, 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 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, making these projects true public-private partnerships.  ETP also funds training for unemployed workers.  For more information, contact ETP's Economic Development Unit at (916) 327-4391 or visit the Employment Training Panel website.
