CVSP Training Program

The signature Certificate for Veterans' Service Providers (CVSP) program is the only nationally disseminated certificate program designed specifically for higher education professionals. To date, over 650 professionals from 40 states, representing more than 100,000 military-affiliated students have been certified.

The CVSP training has been offered at ten different locations including Stockton University (Pomona, NJ), Ramapo College of New Jersey (Lyndhurst, NJ), Texas State University (San Marcos, TX), the University of North Carolina (Charlotte, NC), Texas A&M (San Antonio, TX), Ashford University (San Diego, CA), CareerTech for Vets (Oklahoma City, OK), the Association of Independent State Colleges and Universities of Rhode Island (Providence, RI), Armstrong State University (Savannah), Fairleigh Dickinson University and University of Maryland University College.

The rigorous, two and a half days curriculum includes seven modules taught by a cross-section of thought leaders in the field of military education, including: the American Council on Education (ACE); the American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU); as well as representatives from the Chairman's Office on Reintegration (CORe), Soldier for Life, and many others. Each presentation is tailored to meet the specific needs of the hosting agency and includes a tour with an "insiders look" at a local military installation.
