Get Trained!

Are you looking for training for ETA-related certifications? Being a not-for-profit 501(c) 6 trade association, ETA does not provide its own training. However, ETA partners with many reputable trainers and schools across the globe to help ensure professionals are prepared to take certifications exams. ETA-approved training providers are better-informed, better-educated, and better-suited to broaden your skill sets and teach you new ways of thinking. They offer training opportunities that will directly and tangibly further your strategic career goals.

Planning is an important aspect of career development. By assessing your personal skills and desires for the future, you can choose training that will maximize your individual potential. Career development training is designed to give beginners and professionals alike the opportunity to evaluate and plan their employment futures, as well as expand their job-related skills and knowledge. Training classes often build upon your existing knowledge and abilities and introduce new skills that will enrich your job search or current work experience.

Employers who implement training can encourage employees to take charge of their own career development. Creating employee accountability can boost a different kind of employee engagement by creating a better sense of loyalty to the company, as well as help employees discover on their own what skillsets they want in order to thrive in the organization and in their career overall. Many ETA-approved training providers offer on-site training for group training events, which makes career development training flexible, engaging and personal.

In addition, career development training can help employees become valued resources for other employees. When the skillset is developed, then these employees can become mentors to others in the business, which is another positive aspect to employee engagement, as well as a great way for organizations to grow their own leadership, and thus retain top talent. When career development training leads to better inclusion within the organization, the less likely employees are to leave.
