Approved Training Providers assist eligible Cash Assistance participants in obtaining vocational training and educational services.
Training Provider Tracking System
Training Provider Tracking System (TPTS) is an HRA/DSS application which enables trainers to submit provider details, program information, and student attendance rosters online. HRA/DSS monitors this information and enters either approved or disapproved status. To become an HRA/DSS approved provider, follow the instructions provided by the Training Provider Tracking System.
