To represent veterans before the Department of Veterans Affairs, you must be accredited by the VA. Accreditation is a two-step process: (1) Complete VA Form 21a, attaching any necessary documents to the form when you submit it; and (2) complete 3 hours of qualifying CLE. To complete the process, you must complete the application and receive accreditation PRIOR to taking the accreditation CLE. This application process could take several months, so it is recommended to start the process now. To learn about the accreditation process visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.
