10th Annual Women Business Leaders Forum Register Today!

On this past weekend’s “Minding Your Business” on News 12+, NJBIA Vice President of Government Affairs Althea D. Ford joined host Bob Considine to discuss a proposed state rule that will make it more challenging for New Jersey’s private career schools to maintain their certificates of approval.

Ford noted a 2022 law requires the state to promulgate rules setting minimum performance standards for career-oriented educational programs. These programs train and certify students in a wide range of occupations and industries.

The law gives the Commissioner of Labor and Workforce Development the authority to revoke, suspend, or conditionally approve a private career school’s certificate of approval if it fails to meet minimum performance standards for even one program.

NJBIA’s “Minding Your Business” is a weekly TV show, and winner of two 2023 Telly Awards, that airs on News 12+ at 9:30 a.m. every Saturday and Sunday, as well as 7:30 p.m. on Saturday.

News 12+ is available on most Fios and Optimum systems in New Jersey, or you can stream it live here.
