  • Funding is only for training provided within the term dates of an approved Agreement.
  • Training methods can include instructor-led, lab, video conferencing, eLearning, and computer-based training (CBT).
  • Records verifying delivery of training must be maintained and made available to ETP staff for review, approval, and audit.
