The Council of Parent Attorneys and Advocates is proud to conduct a year-long Special Education Advocate Training (SEAT), the only nationally developed and recognized year-long course that provides participants with training to become a special education advocate. Click here for more general information on Advocate Training 

Opens a New Window. The SEAT course is based in part on the SEAT Curriculum developed through a partnership between COPAA and the University of Southern California on a three-year demonstration grant funded by the U.S. Department of Education in 2005. 

This session uses a web-based curriculum and distance learning. The course is being offered as a combination of self-paced web learning, readings, group and individual assignments as well as live virtual classrooms.  Participants must have a computer, web access, and frequent access to email. The course typically requires 5-6 hours per week of work (including the 2 hour mandatory class).
