Training Provider Details

The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity (WIOA) Act requires that states and local area workforce boards maintain an eligible training provider list (ETPL) and list of programs that are certified to receive students using WIOA funds. This list is a tool for participants seeking training to identify local providers and programs and access relevant information including cost and length of program.

To receive WIOA funds, students must qualify for services under WIOA and they are only permitted to use these funds in programs that appear on the eligible training provider list. Inclusion on the ETPL itself does not guarantee that WIOA funds are available for enrollment. Programs are approved at the state level, but each workforce board can certify programs based on local demand.
