The Washington state Eligible Training Provider (ETP) List is the official list of training programs eligible to provide training to individuals who qualify for the following state and federal funds: 

Education and training programs on the ETP List must meet minimum performance standards for completion and employment, which ensures that training dollars are spent on quality programs.

ETP performance analysis methodology and training program eligibility determination procedures are detailed in the state's WIA Policy No. 3635: Governor's Procedure for Determining Training Program Eligibility.

The ETP List, formerly a stand-alone website, is now part of the new Career Bridge website. All programs on the former ETP List website have been moved to Career Bridge and are flagged as "ETP-eligible".

Types of programs/providers that can be considered for ETP eligibility:

1. Postsecondary education and training that is approved or licensed by one of the following:

2. Registered Apprenticeship programs approved by the Department of Labor and Industries

3. If a training program is exempt from oversight by one of the government agencies above, it must be approved by a local Workforce Development Council. There are 12 councils that address the workforce needs of different regions of the state. 

4. Training providers must have a permanent training location in Washington state in order to be considered for the Washington ETP List.
