SB14-149 - Private Occupational Schools Standards

Passed/Signed into Law
Concerning The Minimum Standards That A Private Occupational School Must Satisfy Before Being Issued A Certificate Of Approval To Operate In Colorado.

Under current law, the private occupational school board (board) establishes criteria that a private occupational school shall meet prior to the board issuing a certificate of approval to operate in Colorado. The minimum standards that the board shall require is established in statute.

The bill removes a statutory provision that exempts the board from having to observe and require compliance with certain statutory standards if the private occupational school is accredited by an accrediting association officially recognized by the United States department of education or by the board, so long as the accrediting body's standards meet or exceed the minimum standards set forth in statute.
