Employer Training Cohort (ETC)

The Employee Training Cohort (ETC) program provides a forum for area companies to come together to share the cost of common training needs. Employers often have specific needs for workforce training that may either be cost prohibitive or unattainable due to the company’s limited number of participants. The ETC allows companies to make available open seats in a training course to other companies to assist in filling class minimum participant requirements or to assist in lowering the cost of training by increasing the number of class participants.

Training is typically provided in small-size class-settings, providing participants with individual attention to address their specific training goals. Classes are normally held in St. Clair County, Michigan.

Through this training collaboration, ETC is able to help the region’s companies:

  • Fill Class Seats Required (by filling with multiple companies needing similar training)
  • Share Training Costs
  • Develop Combined Training Opportunities at Various Locations
  • Utilize Different training resources

Antitrust Statement
The purpose of the Employee Training Cohort (ETC) program is to explore avenues of mutual interest and cooperation in employee training needs among St. Clair County businesses. In the course of all ETC activities, discussions among program participants involving pricing, sale terms, territories, production or other aspects of competition, must be avoided. In the event any company ever feels that the course of ETC activities is headed into such an area, participants should raise the issue immediately so that further discussion of such matters can be suspended pending receipt of advice satisfactory to the participants that the topics addressed do not give rise to antitrust problems.

No Poaching Agreement
Companies utilizing the ETC program agree in good faith not to proactively recruit one another’s employees. It is understood that all workers are entitled to the benefits of a competitive labor market; and while they may explore career opportunities within St. Clair County at any time, compnies agree to a courtesy no-poaching agreement for participants of the ETC program.
