Many of the students who attend classes with Pacific West Academy enroll with Employment Development Department (EDD) Centers and qualify for Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (WIOA) training or the Veterans Educational Assistance Program (VEAP) funding which can cover all costs of the course.

Our Certified Executive Security Specialist and Certified Protection Specialist courses are approved by the Veterans Administration to receive GI Bill® Benefits. We have contacts within many local and national agencies that assist graduates of our programs with costs that come with finding work (equipment/clothing/transportation, etc.).

Any textbook costs, equipment fees, application fees, cost of ammunition, facility use, certifications, etc. affiliated with the course curriculum are included with the listed rate for the course.

We work to provide our students with not just the tools to find any job, but to find gainful employment. 99% of our faculty and staff are veterans,and our completion rate and employment rate in 2018 were 100 percent, according to South Bay Workforce Investment Board (SBWIB).

Although job placement is not guaranteed, we work to give all students the tools needed to find employment. We are connected with recruiters from many hiring companies in Southern California and will match your commitment to finding gainful employment.

Anyone who qualifies may attend.
