These Principles ensure that educational institutions provide meaningful information about the financial cost and quality of institutions to assist prospective students in making choices about how to use their federal educational benefits; prevent abusive and deceptive recruiting practices benefits; and ensure that educational institutions provide high-quality academic and student support service to active duty service members, reservists, Guardsmen, veterans, and family members.

After years in the education industry and after seeing training school after training school fail to deliver what they promise, the team at the CALIFORNIA TECHNICAL ACADEMY has developed the CTA Delivery System and the STEP Certification Process. The combination of the CTA Delivery System and the STEP Certification Process ensures that each individual student has their training delivered in the most desirable way for their individual learning needs and every student masters each individual concept both ACADEMICALLY and HANDS-ON before the next concept is even presented.
