About the UpSkill California Community College Collaborative

The UpSkill California Collaborative is composed of more than 30 California Community Colleges that deliver customized workforce training and workplace education via Workforce Training & Development Centers (WTDC). The Centers receive support from the Employment Training Panel (ETP)—a state agency that provides funding to employers to assist in upgrading the skills of their workers through training. ETP funding helps off-set the costs of job skills training necessary to maintain high-performance workplaces.

To help businesses manage and administer the complexities of ETP contracts, several of the UpSkill California Collaborative college members are designated as Multiple Employment Contract (MEC) holders. Those colleges assist other college members in procuring ETP contracts for their clients, thus expanding the geographic area served by ETP.
