Training Workshops and Conferences


Initial Approval Training - For New Applicants

Initial Approval Training is a mandatory training webinar for schools seeking initial approval to offer education and training to veterans and other eligible persons. A school that has had its approval withdrawn is also required to attend this webinar when they seek re-approval.

A State Approving Agency’s (SAA) representative, typically the Education Support Specialist, will respond to your Application Request. The representative will send you an invitation to the next Initial Approval Training Webinar. They are scheduled from 9:30 am to 12:00 p.m. on the first Thursday of every month.

Please contact the SAA by email at or by phone at 804-225-2298 for assistance.
