Continuing Education Grants

Could you use more training funds?  One of the ways that CAPPA serves its membership is through the offer of continuing education grants for an APPA, CAPPA or state sponsored educational opportunity.  Continuing Education Grants (CEG's) are available for individuals who show potential for advancement in the physical plant profession.  Check out the link below for more information about this funding opportunity.
