  • Focuses on occupational training: The primary objective of the programs should be to equip students with the skills and knowledge necessary for gainful employment in a recognized occupation.
  • Operates for-profit or non-profit: This applies to both private businesses and non-profit organizations offering occupational training programs.
  • Located within or outside Colorado: The DPOS regulates schools physically located in Colorado and those based outside the state that offer programs to Colorado residents through distance education.

Here are some exemptions:

  • Apprenticeship programs: These are registered and defined by the U.S. Department of Labor.
  • Degree-granting institutions: Schools accredited by an agency recognized by the US Department of Education (USDOE) offering programs at the associate degree level or higher are overseen by the Degree Authorization Act (DAA).
  • Avocational education: Programs designed for personal development or recreational purposes that aren’t intended to prepare individuals for specific occupations. This includes hobbies, crafts, personal development courses, and some non-occupational interest programs.

If you’re unsure whether your school falls under the DPOS regulations, it’s advisable to contact them directly for clarification. Their website https://cdhe.colorado.gov/about-us/division-of-private-occupational-schools also provides additional information and resources.
