Benefits of CAPPS Membership
Legislation: CAPPS is the organization the Governor and the legislature talk with in order to discover the sector position on current issues. CAPPS represents the mainstream school sector which includes various kinds of schools – from academic, advanced degree granting, for-profit and non-profit institutions to Registered and Approved Schools. CAPPS is the voice of the sector – shouldn’t your voice be heard as well?
Public Relations Campaign: Our sector changes thousands of lives for the better every year. CAPPS is engaged in bringing the very positive stories of our member schools to the Governor, the Legislature, the media and the general public. CAPPS member schools are featured in press releases, newsletters, electronic updates and other media formats. Your membership provides opportunities to talk about your Institutional activities in new and exciting ways.
Direct Institutional Help: Every Institution needs some specific help and advice on occasion. Whether it is a state law compliance issue or an educational decision to add a branch or a new program, CAPPS is there to offer expert advice and assistance. CAPPS staff can provide legal and regulatory advice on school matters or they can assist you in finding the qualified expert that you need to resolve your issues. What is the cost of hiring the wrong person compared to getting the right advice by being a CAPPS member?
Continuing Education: CAPPS provides professional continuing education units in accordance with State requirements for all employees of proprietary schools . CAPPS continuing education covers legal issues, financial aid, admissions topics, placements and retention matters, owner and director issues, teacher training and a host of other topics important to the development of your organization. CAPPS recognizes the value of your time. Our training is available through self-paced courses online and through intensive seminars held throughout the state.
Scholarships: The Memorial Scholarship Program provides Private Career Schools with the opportunity to give back to their local community and receive well-deserved recognition.
Complimentary Programs through CAPPS Allied Partners: The CAPPS Online GED Prep Program is free to all students associated with CAPPS Member Schools. No pop-ups, no ads… just GED review and sample test questions. (Provided by CAPPS Allied Partner Comcourse.)
Conferences: State Legislative and Annual Conferences… Every Spring and Fall CAPPS brings schools together around the State to network and hear the latest in private proprietary educational issues and important challenges facing our sector.
CAPPS is Information: This is the information age… being left behind is so 20th Century. CAPPS keeps members up-to-date with newsletters, our Members-Only Website with Message Board, Members-Only Updates (via e-mail or fax), Legislative Alerts, conference calls, town hall meetings, and personal meetings with CAPPS staff and board members.
CAPPS Provides Sector Initiatives to increase the role of Private Postsecondary Institutions in Workforce Development Programs, Employment Training Panel Programs, Welfare Reform Programs, Rehabilitation Programs, Cal Grant Programs, and many other revenue enhancement programs.
CAPPS Provides Member Referrals to qualified consultants and sector professionals, such as Attorneys, Educational Consultants, Publishers, Human Resource Companies, Financing Companies, Certified Public Accountants, and other firms that specialize in working with Private Postsecondary Schools.
All of these services and more are offered through our Sacramento based headquarters, with a branch office in Southern California.
CAPPS services are delivered with a caring, personal touch that is sensitive to your needs. Do not make the mistake of trying to “do it” on your own.
California is too complex and intense for any one institution to be totally successful on its own.
