Center for Occupational Employment Information - COEI
COEI is the agency dedicated to meeting the occupational and career information needs of vocational education, employment and training program managers and policy makers, and the career development needs of youth and adults.
Training Opportunities and ETPL
COEI operates the New Jersey Training Opportunities website that contains information on approved schools and training providers, and their programs placed on the State Eligible Training Provider List (ETPL). The website also features the Consumer Report Card, which contains information on the effectiveness of these programs by giving the consumer the ability to compare training providers by employment outcomes and the starting salary after graduation.
Training Evaluation Unit
The Center’s Training Evaluation Unit (formerly School Approval Unit) is responsible by law for the approval and oversight of two types of providers: Private Vocational Technical Schools operating as for profit enterprises; and Training Providers operating as not-for-profit, offering various types of skills/occupational training to customers of the One Stop Career Centers.
