SFA COACH 2001-02 is available online
I'm very pleased to announce the release of SFA COACH 2001-02. The best news about the third edition is that you'll be able to study the program online - no need to download software as in earlier versions.
This introductory course in student aid management offers you 36 self-paced lessons and is available at http://www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/fsa/index.html. Technology allowed us to expand access to this year's COACH so it works on either a PC or a Macintosh. We've also made some changes to meet accessibility standards required by Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
I want to thank the student aid administrators who serve on the COACH advisory group, and also ED's Office of Assistive Technologies. We listened to their suggestions and made improvements that I think you'll like. We're already at work on the 2002-03 edition, so please continue to give us feedback as you try out this first web-based version.
SFA COACH was designed to support financial aid professionals in their critical management jobs. We've been glad to hear that the program continues to meet a training need in the student aid community.
