Orientation and Pre-Application
An overview of the process can be seen in this chart.
Before beginning the Orientation, you must register. Provide the basic contact information requested and you will receive login instructions via e-mail. If you have previously registered using your current email address, there is no need to re-register.
After registering, you may complete the Orientation. This short program will familiarize you with the ETP Process and help answer any questions you have about our program. It is highly recommended that everyone completes the on-line Orientation prior to beginning the Preliminary Application.
Once you have completed the Orientation, you may continue to the Preliminary Application. The Pre-App is used to establish basic eligibility requirements to contract with the Panel.
You may contact the Economic Development Unit for more information at (916) 327-4391.
Keep in Mind
Because top management support is key to a successful training program, at least one top-level manager must complete the orientation. A third party or subcontractor completing the online orientation on your behalf does NOT satisfy the orientation requirement. A third party may not complete the Preliminary Application on your behalf.
Notice: Your participation in ETP's Online Orientation is considered a public record and may be made available upon request from the public.
