Applications and Instructions for Licensed Private Career Schools

At this time some forms may be submitted electronically while the majority are in PDF format that require the user to have Adobe Acrobat, which is a free program, installed on the computer. Although PDF forms cannot be edited, they can be printed without the loss of any formatting. Or if the user prefers, they can be converted to Microsoft Word or Apache OpenOffice Writer, a free open source application, for editing. We are in the process of converting all forms to electronic versions.

Quarters Application Instructions 

Note: Proposed locations in the five boroughs of New York City must meet local fire and building code for an adult trade school. A proposed location’s Certificate of Occupancy, must indicate an “occupancy use group” that is compliant with NYC Division of Building code for adult trade school purposes. BPSS advises that current or prospective school owners seeking new quarters, consult with a licensed architect and/or engineer who is knowledgeable about compliance with code for an adult trade school. Prior to signing a lease for new space, current or prospective school owners should ensure landlords and lease documents provide for obtaining and/or maintaining compliance with fire and building code for an adult trade school and for any other modifications that might be necessary to offer instruction at the proposed location.
