State of California — California Private Postsecondary Education Act of 2009
IPSB at Life Energy Insitute has approval to operate as a private postsecondary school in the State of California. This approval is based on provisions of the California Private Postsecondary Education Act (CPPEA) of 2009, which is effective January 1, 2010, under Section 94802(a) of CPPEA. The Act is administered by the Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education, under the Department of Consumer Affairs. The Bureau can be reached at: P.O. Box 980818, Sacramento, CA 95798-0818, 916.574.7774 or www.bppe.ca.gov.
The Bureau establishes educational standards that are intended to serve as the minimum standard for instructional quality and institutional stability for private postsecondary schools, such as our massage school in California. The Bureau responds to student complaints and oversees a fund designed to help reimburse a student’s tuition if a school closes unexpectedly. The Bureau is also responsible for approving education and training programs for veterans.
