Nebraska's Eligible Training Provider List


Nebraska’s Eligible Training Provider List was first established in compliance with the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 and continues under the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014 (WIOA). WIOA was signed into law July 22, 2014 and became effective July 1, 2015. 

Our Eligible Training Provider List is a list of training providers who qualify to receive WIOA funding through Individual Training Accounts (ITAs) for providing training services to eligible individuals through approved training programs, including Registered Apprenticeship programs. (An ITA is a funding account used by youth, adults, and dislocated workers in need of training to enhance their job readiness or career pathways.) 

The Eligible Training Provider List is accessible on the NEworks homepage, just click on Training Services under the Job Seekers menu, then click on ETPL Approved Programs.
