CBC Receives Veterans/Military Family Award


Community Business College has been recognized by Military Advanced Education Magazine as a “Top College” in the 2015 Guide to Colleges & Universities.”  As such, the college received an award and an article in the 2015 guide published for military members and their families.

 


The magazine selected the college for its programs to help both veterans and military family members obtain new skills and jobs. It is one of the few vocational colleges in California to be included and it is the 4th time the school has been so named.

 

Military Advanced Education is the journal of higher learning for today’s service member.

 

Community Business College has placed a high priority of training and services on veterans and active-duty military families. Working with the Veterans Administration, the U.S. Department of Labor and the Department of Defense, the school has been able to provide employment training and job placement assistance to California’s Central Valley military families for over 17 years.

 

“We’re excited that the college has once again been recognized for its efforts to assist the courageous men and women and their families serving our country.  They take time out of their lives to serve us and we appreciate the sacrifices they make every day. Military life can be very disruptive and our part of school’s mission is to do what we can to support them.

Community Business College provides “Thank You For Your Family’s Service” scholarships and support activities for active duty families. The school also provides active duty military spouses full training and job placement scholarships through the Military Spouse Career Advancement Accounts (MyCAA), G.I. Bill, and Work Investment Act (WIA) tuition programs to help eligible military-related students cover the costs of attending the school’s vocational training programs.

In addition to its regular vocational training courses and its assisted job placement services, the school provides specialized training programs for military spouses who don’t have high school diplomas or need to learn English as a second language.
