Building Approval: The building used for the school must be approved with an Aor 6 license, which specifies that the building is approved for use as a school. The building must also be independent from other businesses and have fire exits and fire protection measures within the school.
Operating Area: The size of the operating area required for the school will depend on the duration and hours of the course being offered. For courses shorter than six months and less than 600 hours, the operating area must be at least 100 square meters. For courses longer than six months but not longer than one year and not less than 1200 hours, the operating area must be at least 200 square meters.
Study Room Size: The study room must have an area of at least 20 square meters, provided that it has a width of not less than 3.5 meters.
Toilet Facilities: The school must have separate toilet facilities for men and women, with enough toilets for the number of students enrolled. The general rule is one restroom for every 35 students, with an additional restroom for every 20 students thereafter.
Building Ownership or Lease: The licensee must either own the building used for the school or have a lease for a minimum of three years from the date of submission. The lease agreement must specify that the purpose of the lease is for using the building as a school.
