The Westchester-Putnam Workforce Development Board is soliciting Eligible Training Providers (ETPs) to provide education and training services for contract period of July 1, 2023 through June 30, 2027. Contracts are valid for this specific four-year period and establishes approved ETP organizations as a vendor of Westchester County.

ETPs offer broad and diverse training opportunities that support the employment goals of Career Center job seekers. Career Center job seekers who qualify* to receive Individual Training Accounts (ITAs), can get funding to receive specialized training to find a new job or advance their careers in high demand fields.

Becoming an Eligible Training Provider (ETP)** requires multiple steps. Steps one and two can be done simultaneously as executing the contract with Westchester County takes a minimum of three months. We encourage ETP’s to assign one person to this task who has the authority to act on behalf of the institution.

Step One: Create your profile on the NYS Department of Labor website, fill in the institutional information, contact details, course curriculum, and payment information.

If you need help you can download the NYS-ETPL User Guide.

Should you have any questions and or issues entering your organization’s information into the ETPL website, please contact email or call (518) 457-2372.

After you register on the NYS DOL website, you will receive a confirmation email when your application has been approved.

Step Two: Submit your request to Westchester County to enter into a contract agreement. To start the process contact:
Bob Fois, Program Specialist
White Plains Career Center
120 Bloomingdale Road, White Plains, NY 10605
Tel: (914) 995-4976

You will be sent a W-9 form, Responsibility Questionnaire form, and Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) form. Complete these documents and return along with your organization’s certificate of incorporation and a cancelled check. (The fiduciary and legal entity name must match exactly).

Step Three: Once the ETP is approved and listed on the NYS-ETPL website, and has an executed Westchester County contract, the ETP can complete the final step of creating a profile on the Westchester-Putnam Career Center Network website. Retain your user name and password as course listings will need to be maintained and updated every semester. Job Seekers will review your course curriculum to apply for funded training opportunities, so it is important to input accurate course names and dates. Register to be a Training Provider

*Job seekers need to be deemed eligible for ITA funding by meeting with a member of the Career Center Workforce Team and supply proof of household income.

**The New York State Eligible Training Provider List (NYS-ETPL) was established in compliance with Title 1 of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) of 2014. Being approved as an ETP does not guarantee that job seekers will select your school or course for training. ITA funds are available for training. Job seekers select their school and course curriculum. The funding of ITA’s is subject to funding availability.
