Become A Host

Become A Host Company

A key part of the success of ETA’s public programs is the many companies in Silicon Valley that become host companies. By doing so, they provide their employees with exceptional training, conveniently held at their company site, without the responsibility of filling an entire session. Many companies use ETA public programs to round out their own curriculum of professional development training.
