ETP Funded Training Rebates are the Best Tool in California for Workforce Development. Manex is a 25-year ETP Contracting Partner.

Call Manex if you need Employment Training Panel (ETP) funding. We are the most hired team to expertly and quickly help Northern California companies get their ETP funding. The Employment Training Panel (ETP) is a joint business-labor state agency that funds training to ensure employers have the skilled workers they need to compete locally and globally. To date, the ETP program has allocated over $1.9 billion to 90,000 businesses to train 1.5 million workers. ETP’s success is the result of several unique features: employer-driven training, business investment, performance based contracting, and customization.

Manex’s ETP Funding Role

Manex has its own unique consortia agreement with the California ETP, which allows our clients simplified access to ETP funding to train their employees as a cost offset via a rebate when using Manex services. Manex works with you to identify training needs and resources that will support your short and long-term training projects.
