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 28 contracts worth more than $8.6 million to train 11,836 workers. Four of the contracts support job creation in the healthcare industry, with Temecula Valley Hospital, San Gabriel Valley Medical Center, Pacific Alliance Medical Center, and Whittier Hospital Medical Center planning to train a total of 126 new hires.
