The Oklahoma Board of Private Vocational Schools ("OBPVS") was created by statute July 1, 1970. The purpose of the agency is to license, regulate, and set standards for operation of private schools that conduct occupational training. Prior to 1982, fiscal responsibility for the Board was held by the Oklahoma Department of Veterans Affairs. In 1982, the OBPVS became a free-standing state agency.
