Career Bridge is a one-stop, searchable database of education and training programs throughout Washington state. It's also home to the state's Eligible Training Provider (ETP) list. Students, career counselors, job seekers and others use Career Bridge to discover:

  • Which programs are ETP-eligible. 
  • Average earnings and employment outlook for each career choice.
  • Hot jobs for the future.
  • What education and training is required to get those jobs.

 Types of education and training programs that can be listed on Career Bridge

Education and training programs must be:

  • Approved by the Washington Student Achievement Council, the State Board for Community and Technical Colleges, the Federal Aviation Administration; or
  • Licensed by the Department of Licensing or the Workforce Training and Education Coordinating Board.

We also list registered apprenticeship programs approved by the Department of Labor and Industries.

Training programs that do not meet any of these criteria can be listed if they are approved by a local Workforce Development Council. Online programs can be listed if they meet the above criteria and are offered at a location inside Washington state.

Please note: Training providers must have a permanent location in Washington state.
