How to Provide Career Training

Eligible Training Providers List (ETPL)

To provide career training to participants in Monterey County, your training organization must be listed on the State of California’s Eligible Training Providers List (ETPL). The ETPL is a comprehensive database designed to gather and display useful information on training providers, their services, and the quality of their programs. All training providers must be listed on the ETPL to receive Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funds for training services provided to adults and dislocated workers.

Once registration is approved, providers can add and maintain training programs through CalJOBSSM. Providers that offer identical programs in multiple areas should only apply to the local WDB area where their headquarters is located. Reference the Provider Services Guide.

To find an approved training provider listed on the ETPL through CalJOBSSM, visit, and click on any of the “Learn More” links and then select Education Services for a menu of options.
