CPD: Benefits for an individual with a high school education were allowed based on medical
and vocational considerations.
CDR: After the CPD, the individual attended a technical school and received an associate
degree in business. The education covered multiple subjects in a relatively short
period. This broad and general training program does not significantly affect the
individual’s ability to transfer directly to skilled work.
Explanation: This exception does not apply because the additional education is not related to
the ability to work. The education is not focused on a specific type of job and does
not result in application of a different vocational rule.
