The Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) enhanced numerous features of the workforce system, including creating a greater emphasis on delivering successful job-driven training that results in credentials and career pathways for job seekers and low-income workers. 

WIOA expanded the eligible training provider lists for technical and occupational classroom training programs, and it strengthened the provisions regarding training provider eligibility.

Eligible Training Providers and the ETPL

WIOA updates provisions regarding eligible training provider (ETP) eligibility and performance, and strengthens the eligible training provider lists (ETPLs) maintained by states, including adding Registered Apprenticeships to the list. 

Workforce boards review training provider success, and ensure that training providers in their areas are available for the types of occupations listed on their targeted or demand occupations list for the local area.
