Webinar on May 15th @ 10:30 AM PST
The California State Approving Agency for Veterans Education (CSAAVE) is proposing new regulations that would effectively end Title 38 participation for many of our sector's schools.
Piggybacking on top of current proposed California State Legislation aimed at our sector schools that enroll Veterans under Title 38, CSAAVE, the rogue unit that was transferred from the abolished Bureau for Private Postsecondary Vocational Education in 2008, is trying to put another nail in the coffin for schools that use Title 38 funds to serve Veterans.
This webinar was presented by CAPPS Executive Director Robert Johnson and CAPPS General Counsel Keith Zakarin. They held an in-depth discussion of the proposed regulations and suggested responses from targeted schools.
This webinar was open to Members and non-members.

The slide deck from the webinar, along with a recording of the webinar, will be posted in the CAPPS Member Portal, in the Webinar Archives.
