Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL)

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) requires states to maintain a list of training providers approved to offer training to individuals eligible to receive WIOA funds. The statewide Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) includes eligible training providers and training programs that are approved by both the Local Workforce Development Areas (LWDAs) and DES to provide training services to eligible WIOA participants. Training programs must meet state and local requirements of in-demand industry sectors and occupations in Arizona, and result in a recognized credential.

The ETPL includes a variety of job-driven training programs informed by local business needs, with information on program costs, performance, and credential outcomes allowing for informed consumer choice.

Arizona Job Connection serves as a virtual statewide labor workforce system connecting individuals to education and training providers offering in-demand occupation training opportunities on the ETPL. A training program is defined as one or more courses or classes, or a structured curriculum that leads to a recognized postsecondary credential and/or employment.
