Train Your Workforce

We Can Help Your Business Stay Competitive
Did you know that the State of California will pay for valuable employee training? Since 1983, California employers have funded training for their workers through the Employment Training Panel (ETP), a state agency that assists employers in strengthening their competitive edge by providing funds to offset the costs of job-skills training necessary to maintain high-performance workplaces.

ETP training funds are available at no out-of-pocket cost to the employer, strengthening their competitive edge by providing funds to offset the costs of job-skills training needed to maintain high-performance workplaces. ETP funds training for currently employed (incumbent) workers and individuals who are unemployed at the start of training. It’s a fact. Highly trained workers have an undeniable edge – every $1 in ETP funds produces a return on investment of more than $5.

JVS SoCal Can Help You Develop a Skilled and Competitive Workforce
We have nearly a decade of experience helping companies secure state funding for worker training, custom training development, and project management. We’ll provide free consultation to determine your workforce needs, complete the grant application and all supplemental forms and help to secure the largest possible grant. We will also provide ongoing project management and support, acting as your advocate with ETP.
