No entity (e.g. Approved Program or DCW Agency) can charge a fee to an individual/employee unless they have a license from the Arizona State Board for Private Postsecondary Education. The following are examples of scenarios prohibited by an entity without a license.
 DCW Agencies can’t require an individual to pay up front for the training and get reimbursed for the
training by their employer once they have exceeded 90 days of employment

  •   DCW Agencies can’t charge an individual for the release of testing records
  •   Approved Programs can’t charge members of the general public (i.e. individuals not employed by a DCW Agency), willing to pay for training and testing.
  •   Approved Programs can’t even provide the training and testing for free to the general public.
