This article reports data collected from the membership of the Health Occupations Education Division of the American Vocational Association regarding program standards, Fourteen standards were submitted to 50% of the Division’s members (N.847). The standards were based on previous studies conducted by the North Carolina Department of Education and East Carolina University. During developmental stages, the potential standards were reviewed by the policy committees of the Division and the National Association of Supervisors and Administrators of Health Occupations Education (NASAHOE). The study data are based on 144 completed questionnaires. This provides a 17% return rate and represents S.5% of the Division’s membership. Since the standards were based upon previous studies, reviewed by HOE Policy Boards, and since the respondents evidenced a high percentage of agreement with the proposed standards, the authors recommend adoption by the Health Occupations Education Policy Board.
