How to become a Training Provider

Stanislaus County Workforce Development (SCWD) is accepting applications to expand the California Statewide Eligible Training Provider list (ETPL) of training providers operating in Stanislaus County. The training programs must be in locally or state defined demand occupations.

Training programs must achieve a minimum 70% entered employment rate or higher in the training occupational area within two years of nomination and maintain that rate every year thereafter. Qualified Training Providers will be included on the statewide list and become eligible to receive referrals of individuals eligible for subsidized training under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).

It is required that Training Providers be accredited by a State of California recognized accrediting organization before any application will be considered for nomination. If your school is not a public education entity or a facility providing a Department of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS) registered apprenticeship training program (, then you must also be registered with the California Department of Consumer Affairs' Bureau of Private Post Secondary Education (

Training Providers interested in having their programs nominated to the statewide approved list must:

  1. Review the CalJOBS Quick Reference Card (see link below);
  2. Request a USER login in CalJOBS (, if you are not a registered USER in CalJOBs;
  3. Enter the required school information into CalJOBS (if the school does not exist in CalJOBs);
  4. Enter the required Training Program Information into CalJOBS;
  5. Submit to SCWD a completed Training Provider Data Change Request (see link below for form) along with the following documents:
    1. Current Accreditation Letter from a State of California recognized accreditation institution,
    2. Current BPPE Approval Letter (if applicable),
    3. Current Liability Insurance, and
    4. Training Program Expense Detail Sheet (see link below for form) for each training program. Send the documentation package via email to

SCWD will determine the eligibility of each program(s) in accordance with the State of California Directive(s) and our local procedures. Inclusion on the statewide and local ETPL does not guarantee your school or training program will receive referrals from Stanislaus County WIOA clients. Our policy drives for informed customer choice when choosing a school and training program. Our participants will choose the school and training program based on their own research and needs to ensure their success.

The final decision to award a training scholarship is made by the SCWD Program Manager and is based on the availability of funding at the time of the training. If you have any questions, please send an email to or call 209-558-2100 and ask for the ETPL Coordinator.
