About ETP Funding
The California state Employment Training Panel (ETP) is a business and labor supported state agency that assists employers by providing funds to off-set the costs of job skills training necessary to maintain high-performance workplaces.
The ETP funding program is entirely funded by the Employment Training Tax paid by California employers and collected alongside the Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax.
The program is performance-based, providing funds for trainees who successfully complete training and are retained in well-paying jobs for a specific period of time.
To be eligible for funding reimbursement, employers have to:
- Be subject to the Unemployment Insurance (UI) tax and the Employment Training Tax
- Have one or more full-time employees (working a minimum of 35 hours per week)
If you are unsure about your eligibility, InTech Center will help you locate your California Employer Account Number (CEAN) to confirm your eligibility.
