For Students Seeking Training:
The New Jersey Training Opportunities website (NJTOPPS) is home to New Jersey's Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL) and Consumer Report Card (CRC). The ETPL is a comprehensive listing of all schools and organizations offering occupational education and job training programs that are eligible to receive publically funded tuition assistance.
Deciding whether or not to pursue additional education or training often relies on one's ability to receive funding or tuition assistance. New Jersey offers many options for training programs and funding through grants for those who qualify.
Eligibility may depend on a number of factors and is determined by speaking directly with a member of our One-Stop Career Center Staff.
To search for training, click on the "Get Started & Search for Training" button above. You can customize your search by occupation and geographic location. Your search results will provide you with information on the various programs offered by each training provider and allow you to compare programs and providers based on information such as the location and length of training, the costs and any special services that may be offered. The CRC portion of the site gives you the ability to compare training providers by employment outcomes and the starting salary after completion of a program. You can also view program comments and reviews submitted by former students.
For questions regarding a specific program or to enroll in a specific program you must contact the school or organization directly. This website is for informational purposes only.
For Training Providers:
Effective August 1, 2016, all training providers seeing ETPL placement or renewal must submit a formal ETPL application packet (click here to read the new ETPL application procedures). Training providers must first obtain approval from a qualified government agency in order to offer training programs. Please click here to view our Frequently Asked Questions on becoming an approved ETPL provider.
Contact the Center for Occupational Employment Information at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or comments about this website.
This website is a product of the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development and the State Employment and Training Commission. Inclusion of a training provider on the ETPL is not an entitlement for a prospective student to receive funding from a local Workforce Investment Board (WIB) or One-Stop Career Center, nor a requirement that the WIB or One-Stop make any referrals to the training provider. All potential providers must satisfy specific eligibility criteria established by the State and WIB to be eligible to receive students paid for with public funds. The selection of an appropriate provider is a mutual decision made by the One-Stop Counselor and the prospective student.
