STATE REGULATORY INFORMATION

Effective July 1, 1974, Florida Law Chapter 74-360 established a nine-member State Board of Independent Postsecondary Vocational, Technical, Trade, and Business Schools to "create the means whereby all independent postsecondary vocational, technical, trade and business schools shall satisfactorily meet minimum educational standards."

The law defines a School as "any nongovernmental, postsecondary vocational, technical, trade, or business noncollegiate educational institution, organization program, home study course, or class maintained or conducted in residence or through correspondence for the purpose of offering instruction of any kind leading to occupational objectives or of furnishing a diploma or degree as defined herein in business, management, trade, technical, or other vocational education and professional schools not otherwise regulated." The exceptions to this law are "colleges and universities which award a baccalaureate or higher degree and junior colleges which award an associate degree nonprofit classes provided and operated entirely by an employer, a group of employers in related business or industry, or a labor union solely for its employees or prospective employees or members."

Business, Management, Trade, Technical or Vocational Education is defined as "any instruction which prepares a person for employment in an occupation listed in the latest dictionary of occupational titles issued by the United States Department of Labor or declared by that department to be eligible for such listing, or which is indicated by a school as leading to employment in an occupation."

A proprietary school must hold a valid license from the board. Such licenses are valid for "one year from the date of issuance and subject to renewal annually. Each school and agent shall have a separate license which shall not be transferable." A license is not an accreditation, nor may it be advertised as such.

No proprietary school in Florida will be issued a license unless it meets certain minimum standards of instructional quality and course content; maintains permanent educational records; has adequate placement and counseling services; uses an enrollment agreement (student contract) and makes its terms clear to a student; does not guarantee placement; and the title "counselor" (or modifications thereof) is not used by anyone who solicits or enrolls students. A school must provide "space, heat, light, ventilation, and storage sufficient and reasonable for the purpose of the courses and the student enrollment"; have "adequate library facilities and resources as appropriate to the courses taught"; have "instructional and practice equipment similar to that found in common occupational practice"; and have "sufficient schedule time for practice." However, "If production work is necessary as a part of a school's education program, every effort shall be made to avoid unfair competition with private enterprise and the exploitation of the students. "

Should further detailed information be needed, refer to Sections 246.201-246.231, Florida Statutes and the Rules of the Department of Education State Board of Independent Post-Secondary Vocational, Technical, Trade and Business Schools, Chapter 6F, F.A.C. Write to the Executive Director, State Board of Independent Post-Secondary Vocational, Technical, Trade and Business Schools, Tallahassee, Florida 32399 for information on how to obtain a copy of each.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Modern Language Association

http://www.mla.org/style

The Chicago Manual of Style

American Psychological Association

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
