The ETPL is a listing of organizations, entities, and institutions―such as public or private colleges and universities, community based organizations, or proprietary schools―for which programs have been approved by a Louisiana Workforce Investment Board and submitted to the state for inclusion on the statewide eligible training provider list.

What is the Home Work Program ? The Home Work Professional Painting Class is a painter-training and community enrichment program developed as a partnership between the Sherwin-Williams Company and a growing number of cities. Since the first “Home Work” pilot programs in 2004, hundreds of students—spread across 29 U.S. cities—have learned painting skills. According to Sherwin-Williams officials, the program has had a profound impact in cities from coast to coast. The program’s purpose is aimed at providing training to prepare interested residents for careers in professional painting; exposing successful trainees to jobs with painting contractors; and educating residents on the importance of proper home maintenance, mold issues, and lead safe practices. The course is designed to teach students not only about proper paint techniques but also life skills and environmental and community issues. The training program is free to qualified residents who apply for admission through the Baton Rouge Business and Career Solutions Center. Sherwin-Williams caters lunch daily at no expense to students, as well as providing all supplies and equipment associated with the training. The focus of the program is truly its students’ success. Sherwin-Williams Graduates 16 On March 8, 2013, the Sherwin- Williams Home Work Professional Painting Program, in partnership with the City of Baton Rouge, held its third congratulatory ceremony for 16 of its most recent graduates. Mayor Melvin “Kip” Holden served as keynote speaker at the graduation, while Mr. Tom Norman of Sherwin- Williams presented the graduates with their newly earned painting credentials, complete with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) certification.
