Targeted Occupations and Approved Training Providers and Programs Lists

CareerSource Tampa Bay’s Local Targeted Occupations List (LTOL) is based on the Statewide and Regional Targeted Occupations (RTOL). The Statewide Demand Occupations list identifies the labor market needs of Florida’s business community and encourages job training based on those needs, with emphasis on jobs that are both high demand and high skill/high wage and is used as a baseline for establishing Local Targeted Occupations Lists (LTOLs). The LTOL is developed after extensive research into our local, regional, and statewide labor and job market. In addition, our Board of Directors, which consists of local business experts, have reviewed and approved this list. Based on this LTOL, the approved training vendors and programs for CareerSource Tampa are listed in the link below. Registered apprenticeships are automatically eligible to be included and maintained on the Eligible Training Providers List (ETPL) as long as the corresponding program remains registered and will remain on the ETPL until it is deregistered or until the registered apprenticeship program notifies DEO in writing that it no longer wants to be included on the ETPL. You may find a list of registered apprenticeships below.
