7.2 Introduction and Overview of the ETPL

Effective date: September 2, 2019

WIOA requires that the State Workforce Agency maintain a list of institutions and their training programs that are eligible for Individual Training Accounts (ITAs).1 This list is called the "Eligible Training Programs List" (ETPL). The ETPL helps ensure training program quality and accountability as well as informed choice for WIOA participants selecting training.2 DWD-DET, as Wisconsin's State Workforce Agency, is responsible for overseeing and maintaining Wisconsin's ETPL.

Wisconsin's ETPL must be used to select ITA-funded training services for WIOA Title I Adult Program and Dislocated Worker Program participants who qualify for training3 and, it may be used for the same purpose for Out-of-School Youth (OSY) Program participants.4 Other core and partner programs are not required to use the ETPL but the state may choose to leverage it as a resource.5 If an institution's training program is not on the list, it can take steps to add the program or, the program may be allowable as a non-ITA training option.6 The ETPL does not apply to services other than training.7

The State Workforce Agency plays a leadership role in ensuring the success of its ETPL, including:

Individual Training Account

Effective date: September 2, 2019

An Individual Training Account (ITA) is the payment the local WDB or its service provider makes, on behalf of a participant, to a training institution for training services, when the institution and the program of interest are included on the State's Eligible Training Programs List (ETPL).

20 CFR § 680.300

Registered Apprenticeship

Effective date: September 2, 2019

A Registered Apprenticeship is a proven business-driven model of job preparation that combines paid on-the-job training with related instruction to progressively increase workers' skill levels and wages. All Registered Apprenticeship programs consist of five core components:

  • direct business involvement in every step of the program design and execution;
  • structured on-the-job training;
  • related instruction or classroom style training that complements the on-the-job training;
  • increases in pay as skills and knowledge increase;
  • and
  • a nationally-recognized credential (aka a Certificate of Completion)
