California Regulators Target Coding Schools

Over the past few years, dozens of startups have begun offering programming classes. Now, many are finding themselves targeted by California regulators. Last week, the state's Bureau for Private Post-Secondary Education (BBPE) sent cease and desist letters to seven different coding schools, demanding that the academies comply with government rules designed to protect consumers.

Russ Heimerich, a spokesperson for the BBPE, explained to TechCrunch that the purpose of the letters was to encourage the coding schools to complete the bureau's application process. To be in compliance with California law, the schools meet several guidelines, including the following:

  • Offering an enrollment agreement that complies with legal requirements
  • Hiring instructors with knowledge of their subject matter
  • Offering a basic course catalog
  • Displaying accurate placement and completion rates

Learn-to-code schools that don't go through the application process face closure or fines up to $50,000.
