  • Post-secondary education institutions
  • Registered Apprenticeship programs
  • Other public or private providers of training, which may include joint labor-management organizations and eligible providers of adult education and literacy activities under Title II if such activities are provided in combination with occupational skills training
  • Local Boards, if they meet the conditions of WIOA sec 107(g)(1)
  • Community Based Organizations or private organizations of demonstrated effectiveness that provide training under contract with the Local Board.


Eligible Training Provider and Programs List (ETPL) is a list of state approved ETPs and their state approved training programs. The ETPL is administered by the WIOA Title I Administrator in partnership with the Local Workforce Development Boards (LWDBs). This list is located on the Virginia Workforce Connection. A program of training services is one or more courses or classes, or a structured regimen that leads to a recognized post-secondary credential, secondary school diploma, or its equivalent, employment, or measurable skill towards such a credential or employment. These training services may be delivered in person, on-line, or in a blended approach.
