Private proprietary (i.e., for-profit) educational institutions in California are heavily regulated by the Private Postsecondary Education Act, enforced by the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education (https://www.bppe.ca.gov/).  The BPPE is a consumer protection agency and mandates compliance in a wide variety of areas for any for-profit business offering educational services for a fee.  Often businesses may not even know they are subject to BPPE regulation.  Common BPPE institutions include for-profit colleges and universities, hairdressing and beauty schools, vocational training schools such as auto or other technical schools, medical or nursing assistant schools, and companies charging fees for training to yoga, dance or similar teachers.
