An Eligible Training Provider is an entity that provides a program of training services and has been determined as eligible to receive Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) funding for training services through an Individual Training Account.

- Institutions of higher education that provide a program which leads to a recognized post-secondary credential; or
- Entities that carry out programs registered under the National Apprenticeship Act (29 U.S.C. 50 et seq.); or
- Other public or private providers of training services, which may include:
- Community-based organizations;
- Joint labor-management organizations; and
- Eligible providers of adult education and literacy activities under Title II of WIOA if such activities are provided in combination with training services described at §680.350 of the WIOA regulations.
Training providers must submit both a provider and a program application(s) through the INTraining website.

Training providers must report student-level data to DWD/INTraining for ALL students (regardless of funding source). Please see the Data Submission Guide for further information.
In instances when a provider does not have student-level data available for a new program, the provider may be eligible to receive a Data Eligibility Waiver. Please see the Data Waiver Submission Guide for further information.
Upon satisfactory submission and approval of a program and application, and the required data or waiver, the program(s) will appear on the INTraining website. The provider will receive a notification indicating the applications, and data will undergo further review to determine whether the program(s) is eligible to receive WIOA funding, and therefore included on the ETPL. See the INTraining Policy for additional information.
All providers on the INTraining website must update all information, including required student-level data, on an annual basis. The provider will receive a notification for the deadline for submission of the updated information and data. Upon submission, the updated program information will be reviewed, and eligibility will again be determined for the program to be included on the INTraining website and the ETPL.
Conditions for Removal
A provider or program may be removed from INTraining and the ETPL for failure to submit updated program information and/or required student level data for continued eligibility or for failure to attain or retain required accreditation for professional licensure. If removed for the above reasons, the provider may re-apply as soon as the issue has been rectified.
A provider or program shall be removed from INTraining and the ETPL if the provider intentionally supplies inaccurate information, misrepresents costs or services, substantially violates the law or regulations under WIOA, or when the provider has been barred by the federal government to receive federal funds. If the provider is removed for these reasons, the provider must wait no less than two (2) years before re-applying.
If a training provider and/or program is removed from the list (for reasons other than failure to meet data submission requirements) while WIOA participants are enrolled, the participants may complete the program unless the provider or program has lost state licensure, certification or authorization to operate by the appropriate state oversight agency.
A provider has the right to appeal denial of program inclusion on INTraining or ETPL during initial eligibility (terminated applications are not subject to appeals) or subsequent removal of the program from INTraining or the ETPL for failure to submit or deficient updated program information/data during continued eligibility. A provider may also appeal DWD's decision to remove a program from the list for failure to attain or retain required accreditation for professional licensure, intentionally supplying inaccurate information, misrepresenting costs or services, substantially violating the law or regulations under WIOA, or when the provider has been barred by the federal government to receive federal funds. See the INTraining Policy for additional information on the appeal process.
