What is a private vocational school?
The schools the OBPVS licenses are defined by the training offered rather where located/housed. Beginning in August 2015, the Oklahoma Legislature clarified that in addition to live training and correspondence courses, the OBPVS should license on-line (distance education) schools that make certain training available to Oklahoma residents. The three main training features that require a school license in Oklahoma are that the entity is:
Private, meaning it is not a public entity or fully paid by tax funding
Remunerated for the training provided
Offering training of a vocational or occupation nature.
For additional information refer to Title 70 O.S. §21-101, the statutory definition of a private vocational school and the License Wizard.
