For ALL DA personnel to have control over their education!

I have been inside an office recently where there was not OSPA training provided within the last two years. There were other temp. personnel in the office and we noticed there were OSAP problems within the office and their employees said they had not had training and they OSAP person was out of the office for a personal matter. We need to give DA's more control over their education and not only rely on their employers. I can see that is is varying from employer to employer. We need to keep the public safe!
