We approve veterans programs

The Workforce Board is one of two State Approving Agencies in Washington, charged by federal law with the responsibility of evaluating and approving programs offered at public and private education institutions statewide for veterans and those eligible for GI Bill education benefits.

The other responsible agency is the Washington Student Achievement Council, which approves degree-granting programs at private four-year institutions, on-the-job (OJT) training and apprenticeship programs, flight schools, and certification exams.

Get more information on veterans benefits at the Veteran's Administration web site.
