About ETA

We’ll Give You All the Skills to Get a New Job or Advance in Your Career

We're in the business of helping people get prepared for a career or advance in a job they already have. Whether it's a single course you need, or you'd like us to help you get an apprenticeship, we're a great resource. We'll do what it takes to help you get ahead.
If you’re an employer and are having trouble finding the right kind of employees, we can also help you. We may have students who are already prepared to help you, or we can work with you to develop a course or a series of courses that will accomplish that goal.
Our courses in these work sectors are designed to meet the specific needs of business and industry careers in our region.
