Labor Department Accepting Applications for Eligible Training Providers


PIERRE, S.D. – The Department of Labor and Regulation is accepting applications for training programs to be approved for the state’s Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL).


The ETPL is a publicly available, statewide list of training providers whose programs have demonstrated qualifications necessary for eligible participants to receive tuition assistance through the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA).


“The trainings are vetted to ensure they lead to high wage and high demand jobs,” said state Labor and Regulation Secretary Marcia Hultman. “These trainings also make participants more employable, retainable and promotable by local employers.”


An application for each training program must be submitted by March 31, 2020, to be considered for inclusion on the ETPL. Applications will be judged on supporting in-demand occupations and meeting participant completion rates, employment rates and wage earnings.


Webinars will be held on Jan. 30 at 2 p.m. CST and Feb. 4 at 10 a.m. CST to explain the application process, discuss reporting and performance requirements, and answer questions. To receive a meeting invite, email dlretpl@state.sd.us.


The South Dakota Workforce Development Council will review all proposals. Providers will be informed of approval or denial by May 31, 2020.
