ETP - Employment Training Panel

Employment Training Panel (ETP)

ETP logo

ETP is a California state agency designed to fund training to meet the needs of employers for skilled workers and the need of workers for good, long-term jobs. The program is provided to California employers for their employees and funds up to 100% of the cost of all training.

Studio Arts is Hollywood's top ETP provider for film, TV, game and other entertainment production and support companies. Why? Because, unlike other providers, Studio Arts offers high quality training at absolutely NO cost to participating companies. There is no "co-pay," no added fees. And Studio Arts will NEVER bill a company if a trainee loses their job or otherwise fails to complete the training. Too good to be true? Studio Arts will back it up in writing.

If your company is interested in participating in having its employees do up to 240 hours of cost-free ETP training, feel free to call 323.227.8776, or email us at
